The Roho Group sponsors tennis tournament

BELLEVILLE --A Belleville company is supporting a wheelchair tennis tournament that concludes this weekend in St. Louis.

The Roho Group is a sponsor of the U.S. Tennis Association Tournament that started this week in Forest Park. The Belleville-based company makes medical devices for people who are bedridden or in wheelchairs, and therapeutic chairs and cushions for motorists, motorcycle riders, office workers and pilots. Company marketing and event manager Jackie Klotz said that The Roho Group has donated $20,000 for the event as well as hospitality, food and volunteers.

This year is the first in 28 years that the annual event has been held in St. Louis. Previous tournaments had been held in California, most recently in San Diego.

The tournament wraps up Sunday.
