The Lord Mayor of Norwich, Judith Lubbock, was on hand to present prizes to the winners of the 10th Louise Willgrass Memorial Tournament in Norwich.
The tournament was played at East Anglia Tennis & Squash Club, in Lime Tree Road, as a women's doubles event.
Mrs Willgrass, from Colney, lost her life at the age of 43 during a family holiday in Thailand when a tsunami from the Indian Ocean struck Phuket on Boxing Day 2004.
Mrs Willgrass' family have since raised tens of thousands of pounds in her memory through the Louise Willgrass Tsunami Fund, to provide educational and financial support to children in Thailand.
This year's tournament raised funds for Cruse Bereavement Care Norwich and it is hoped will have raised over £500, once all monies have been collected.
