Woodward died from an aneurysm at age 25. The Goodfellows Club and the Owensboro tennis community partner to honor his memory. Many of his high school and college friends come back to Owensboro to play in the tournament.

The event features several categories of competition - Open (4.5 or above), A (4.0), B (3.5), & C (3.0 or below); Men/Women Singles; Doubles and Mixed Doubles. All participants will receive a T-shirt.
