A DATE has been set for a memorial tournament in the memory of a late tennis stalwart from Denbigh.

Alastair McNab sadly passed away in September of last year, while still in his role of treasurer at Denbigh Tennis Club and chairman of North Wales Tennis. A tournament in memory of Alastair will be held at Denbigh Tennis Club on Saturday, April 7.

McNab helped aid the club's court resurfacing back in 2012 and attracted new club sponsors in 2014, following his reinstatement as the club's treasurer in 2010.

Alastair also began the tricky task of applying for floodlights for the club in early 2017, when he proposed plans for all four courts to be lit, a tricky task that has been taken over by his brother-in-law Neal Condon.

Alastair was also a keen chairman of North Wales Tennis, a role he enjoyed from 2014 and saw him become a board member of Tennis Wales.

During his tenure within these roles, Alastair supported Rhyl Tennis Club to be set up, in an attempt to raise the profile of tennis and increase participation within the area.

The tournament in his memory - hosted by Denbigh Tennis Club - will be held on Saturday, April 7, from 2pm, to remember Alastair for all the hard work that he put into tennis in Wales since moving to the area in the 1980s.

The tournament will aim to bring all North Wales tennis clubs together for a season starting friendly in his memory and to also raise money and awareness for St Kentigern Hospice and the Stroke Association.
