They defeated Box BC from Wiltshire 42-36 in this afternoon’s final at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa.
Box were in control in the opening stages of the match with Nick Grenfell’s rink leading 15-2, before a remarkable run in the second half of the contest by Camberley’s David McCallum’s quartet to ensure a 21-21 draw.
Camberley BC enjoyed a 39-33 defeat of Brimfield & Little Hereford BC, Herefordshire in the semi-final, with Box BC reaching the final with a two-shot victory over Sussex’s Eastbourne BC.
