    Please note that the scoring system for the league is now PAR 15 unless the 2 players agree to play english scoring prior to the match, if no agreement is made then par 15 is to be used.

    Any issues then please get in touch.

    Good Luck!

Sad Farewell!!

Posted by Wilson Paul, Wednesday, 1st May 2019 @ 8:13pm

  • It is with great sadness that we say farewell to a family that have been fantatstic additions to the club for many years as Julia & Graeme Taylor-French complete their relocation to live in Italy next week. Many of us have seen both Julia and Graeme's girls Lily and Lotti grow from small squash phenoms into two beautiful and extremely talented young ladies and all four will be a real loss to the club. We wish them all well in ther contiued adventures and Julia and Graeme would like to invite anyone wishing to have a drink and say goodbye's at the Star Pub, Gillingham on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May from 6pm onwards. It would be really good to have a good turnout.

Club Championship Final 2018/19

Posted by Wilson Paul, Sunday, 7th April 2019 @ 9:23pm

  • Thursday 4th April saw the mouth watering final between Barry Watson and Sam Millett. The match got off to a very even start. Sam finally winning the first game 9-4, despite Barry being 3-0 up. We knew then that this match would be very close.

    Sure enough the second game started with Sam 4-0 up but Barry won it 9-6.

    The third game was no less competitive but Sam just couldn`t win the points when it mattered and Barry won it convincingly 9-1 much to Sam`s frustration.

    The fourth game was almost a mirror image of the third with Sam finally winning it 9-3.

    Up to this point both players had made few errors and both players had been stretching to get to shots which looked impossible to get to. At 2 games all, it was all down to the fifth game and they kept up the incredibly high standard with Sam eventually winning it 9-5. 

    There was no doubt these were the 2 best players in the club playing out a fantastic final.

Repairs to Court 2 at the Barracks

Posted by Wilson Paul, Wednesday, 9th January 2019 @ 11:31am

  • Hi All,

    We have been informed by the Army that court 2 will be out of use on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th January as the floor is being repaired following some blood staining. The work is being conducted on Wednesday but the floor needs 48 hours to dry.

    On Wednesday 16th there is a Kent League match being played so both remaining courts will be used for this between 7.30 - 10.00pm.

    On Thursday 17th we should have full use of 2 courts assuming no Army personnel arrive.

    Kind regards
