William Roy Genders (21 July 1913 – 28 September 1985) was an English cricketer who played first-class cricket for Derbyshire in 1946, for Worcestershire from 1947 to 1948 and for Somerset in 1949. Genders was born in Dore, then in Derbyshire. He played several games for Derbyshire in 1945 before first-class cricket was resumed after the war. He remained with Derbyshire in the 1946 season, appearing thrice with little success. During the next 1947 and 1948 seasons he played five times for Worcestershire, and it was here that he recorded his best performances. He made 55 not out against his old club Derbyshire, and took all his three wickets for the county in a single match against Gloucestershire; the most notable of his victims was probably "one-Test wonder" George Emmett.

He remained with Derbyshire in the 1946 season, appearing thrice with little success. During the next 1947 and 1948 seasons he played five times for Worcestershire, and it was here that he recorded his best performances. He made 55 not out against his old club Derbyshire, and took all his three wickets for the county in a single match against Gloucestershire; the most notable of his victims was probably "one-Test wonder" George Emmett. Genders' last two matches in first-class cricket came for Somerset in the 1949 seasons, but his scores of 3, 22, 0 and 4 were unimpressive and he never played county cricket again. His 22 came in Somerset's second innings against Cambridge University in June 1949. In this match, all eleven Somerset players (and Extras) reached double figures, but none went on to score a half-century. Genders was a right handed batsman and played 19 innings in ten first class matches with an average of 16.33 and a top score of 55 not out. He took three first class wickets with an average of 32.66 and a best performance of 2 for 43. Genders wrote two books about cricket, one a history of Worcestershire County Cricket Club and the other concerning English league cricket. He also wrote a great many books on the subject of gardening. Genders died at the age of 72 in Worthing, Sussex. (en)
