British Open - A History


The Allam British Open is the oldest and most established tournament on the PSA World Tour calendar and has seen some of the greatest players of all time battle it out to lift the revered trophy throughout its storied history.

Second only to the PSA World Championships in prestige, the British Open began in 1929 under a challenge format, where the title holder would be challenged by either the professional or amateur squash champion.
