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

The club had two members playing at the 2018 Rodmersham Open this year with Jake Tossell in the B Grade and Sam Millet competing in both the A and B Grades. Jake and Sam met in the quarterfinals of the B grade with Sam running out a 2-0 winner 11-4, 11-9. Sam went all the way to the final but lost a tight match 2-1 to Matt Witt. Jake went on to finish a respectable 7th.
In the A Grade Sam was unfortunately drawn against the number one seeded and eventual A grade winner Ted Jeal and ended up losing 11-0, 11-4. Sam went on to win one more match and came in 7th in a scarily strong field.
Due to Sam's heroic efforts in the top two grades he was rightly awarded the title of Player of the Tournament.
