Campion Tennis Club have been crowned champions of the Tennis Lancashire Roscoe Trophy, for the first time in the club’s history.
The Roscoe Trophy consists of the best mens teams from all over Lancashire and it was the competition’s defending champions Holcombe Brook Tennis Club who Campion would have to beat in the final to win.
Having fallen at the last hurdle in recent years, Campion were determined to go one stop further in 2018/19. After a First Round Bye, victories at Sphynx Tennis Club and Bamford Tennis Club followed to set up a final against one of Lancashire’s most successful tennis clubs, Holcombe Brook.
The Roscoe Trophy final was a fitting climax to the season after the mens First Team had once again claimed the Liverpool Tennis League First Division Trophy for a record fourth consecutive year.
In front of members from their respective clubs as well as guests from Tennis Lancashire, the final was played in a great spirit and was settled in the final rubber of matches. Campion would eventually come out on top 5-4.
Club Captain Callum Baddeley commented:
“Victory today is a great way to end the season. It’s been another successful season for the club but to win the Roscoe Trophy for the first time in the club’s history is the icing on the cake. And to see the club packed with friends and members to see us clinch a nail-biting final match was just unbelievable!”
