DOUBLES delight went the way of Alison Godwin and Steffan Jones.

Denbigh Tennis Club held its annual mixed doubles tournament on Sunday, in memory of their former treasurer Alastair McNab.

It proved to be a momentous day as Alison Godwin becoming the first player to win the club's double of a singles and mixed doubles title.

The eventual champions played well to come third in the group.

They lost 4-1 to group winners Wayne Cooper and Anne Spiller, the latter of which was seen as an inspiration to others at the age of 65.

The duo played well, earning 32 games out of a possible 45 to take the group stage win, with well earned victories against Paul Roberts and Lisa Carter (3-2) and a further 4-1 victory against a strong John Plumb and Cathryn Lloyd-Jones pairing.

Also reaching the last-four were Nathan Pope / Gwenan Roberts and Paul Roberts / Lisa Carter.

The matches took place over 10-point tie breaks, with Jones / Godwin striding to 10-2 victory in their encounter against Roberts and Carter.

The other tie was a much closer affair, with Pope / Roberts losing a match point at 9-8 against Cooper / Spiller.

The later pair then battled back to win their clash 14-12.

They played well early in the final and they built up a 7-4 lead.

Some great and consistent play from Godwin brought it to 8-7 in her team's favour and an unforced error made it 10-9 to Godwin / Jones.

Facing serve and at a match point down, Cooper returned Jones' serve long, giving Alison and Steffan an 11-9 victory.
