The Black Lion Squash Club was formed in 1978 by the then management of the Black Lion Leisure Centre which is today the newly extended and prestigious Medway Park in Gillingham, Kent. In 1979 the management was given over to the Membership and it became a private Club.
If you want to learn or already play and would like to join our Club then we run Club nights at Brompton Barracks on a Tuesday (6pm - 9pm) Wednesday (6pm - 9pm) & Thursday (6.30pm - 9pm) and at the Medway Park Sports Centre on Saturday's from 3.30pm.
All levels of players from juniors to advanced are welcome. We have coaches from Level 1 to Level 3 to train juniors and give lessons to those that would like to improve their game. We run training evenings for juniors each Friday from 5.40 until 7.00pm at the Centre. Please see the contact details under the Coaching tab.

I hope we are all staying safe indoors, just a quick heads up about a great initiative from Joe Magor at Canterbury squash club in support of our NHS. All proceeds from these unique t shirts go to the NHS.

Due to the on going concerns with COVID19 and the Govermental advice to undertake social distancing to slow the spread of the virus the Club has taken the decision to postpone all boxleagues and clubnights with immediate effect. We will listen to Government announcements and review this decision on a week by week basis.
Apologies to you all but please follow the Governmental advice and stay safe.

Open to all members......come along and play other…
I hope the cold isn't holding you back from Squash!
Firstly, I would like to say well done and thank you to all those who played all their league games or attempted to play all their games (i know who you are!) as this helps fulfil the purpose of the leagues.
Secondly, Octobers final league scores have been updated as usual and the new league is now up on the website and will be on the notice board at Medway Park in due course. I have extended the league to five weeks finishing on the 22nd December to allow a little extra time to play in the run up to the festive period.
Thirdly, as some are unaware I would like to clarify the issue regarding claiming matches, matches cannot be claimed unless I have been informed as stated in the league rules. This is to ensure that the game is claimed for a valid reason once verified with both parties, as a pose to just one party writing the score on the sheet and leaving it to me to figure out. The onus is upon the person wishing to claim to contact me prior to league end stating the reason for claiming.
