About the Club

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 a Club nights at Brompton Barracks on a Wednesday & Thursday night from 6pm and at the Medway Park Sports Centre on Saturday's from 2.40pm.

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.

For more information please contact our Membership Co-ordinator Len Locke on 01634 846312 or 07790 156601

Most Improved - July 2018

  • As promised here are the movers and shakers for the month of July and top of the pile is Steve Winder closely followed by Darren Trebble


Medway Park Squash Courts

Posted by Mick Jones, Tuesday, 31st July 2018 @ 8:06pm

  • As you may know if you have had courts booked at the Medway Park this week the lights on courts 1 & 3 are not working. Apparently an electrician is attending tomorrow Wednesday 1st August in the hope of getting them up and running again. We all know how long it took to get court 2 sorted out so don't hold your breath. If they are not fixed before the weekend Club night will need to be cancelled although court 2 will be left booked assuming the lights carry on working on that court. Will let everyone know in the next couple of days.

Ankermill 2017 Final

Posted by Mick Jones, Saturday, 28th July 2018 @ 10:38am



  • The long awaited final of the 2017 Ankermill Handicap competition was played at the Medway Park on Friday 27th July 2018 between John Watts & Stephen Reeves.

    John works away a lot so it was arranged at short notice. Spectators were in short supply - exactly zero!

    It was always going to be difficult for Stephen as John started 2017 on a very good handicap but Stephen is clearly one of the most improved players now (in box league 1). In the final the maximum points that a player can start on is 16 in each game.

    Stephen was hoping to get off to a good start. He got that and more in the first game.

    John served first but Stephen won the first point and then proceeded to win the next 17 with some excellent angled shots. John did win a couple of points but lost 19 - 21.

    In the second game Stephen stuck to his power game and and with John only winning one point ran out to win 21 - 17.

    If John didn't think the pressure was on him at the start he certainly did now.

    John had been playing well but really got stuck in in the third game. After some really good rallies he quickly got the 5 points he needed and won the game 21 - 6.

    Both players knew the fourth game was going to be crucial and Stephen won the first 3 points. It only needed for John to get a few good shots over the line but they were going just below and he soon found himself 19 - 18 down. He pulled it back to 19 each but Stephen finally won 21 - 19 and the match 3 -1.

    The match was played in a really good spirit by both players. A credit to the standard of squash within the Club.
