Doris Metaxa Howard (née Metaxa; 12 June 1911 - 7 September 2007), was a French tennis player of the 1930s.

In 1932, she won Wimbledon in the women's doubles with the Belgian Josane Sigart against Elizabeth Ryan and Helen Jacobs, one year after a finals defeat with the same partner.[1]

Two weeks after this success, she married the British rugby player Peter Dunsmore Howard.
