GODFREY — The 2014 city doubles championships in tennis, the Alton/Godfrey Closed tournament, will take place Aug. 5-7 at Alton High School and Lewis and Clark Community College.
This is the fourth year of the Closed tournament. City champions will be crowned in men’s and women’s open, mixed doubles, and in youth divisions. Other categories include parent/child, family doubles, and husband/wife.
“The best thing about this tournament is that anyone can play,” tournament director Jesse Macias said. “We have divisions that range from under 14-to- 40 and over, so there is something for everyone. The competition level is excellent for a city tournament.
“Last year, the father/son division (won by Randy and Tyler Jackson) was really strong and the men’s open was won by two college players, Pat Spain and Pat Logan. We are looking forward to another great tournament.”
