Overview

The 2016 Allam British Open sees the prestigious ‘Wimbledon of Squash’ take place at the Airco Arena, Hull from March 21-27 – the first time the World Series tournament has been held over the Easter weekend since 1996.

The oldest and most-established event on the PSA World Tour calendar, the British Open takes place in Hull for the fourth successive year and sees the world’s leading players battle for one of the sport’s most coveted titles.

A host of greats have lifted the iconic title, including Jahangir Khan (10), Geoff Hunt (8), Hashim Khan (7), Jansher Khan (6) and the legendary Jonah Barrington (6) being the most regular winners of the Men’s event over the next 50 years.

The Women’s event, meanwhile, has seen luminaries such as Heather McKay, who lifted 16 consecutive British Open crowns, and Susan Devoy, who has eight titles to her name, light up the tournament that has been running since 1929.

World No.1 Mohamed Elshorbagy is the Men’s defending champion after triumphing over current World Champion Gregory Gaultier in last year’s event while Camille Serme became the first Frenchwoman to win the Women’s title after defeating World No.1 Laura Massaro.

Both players return to defend their title, with other world-class players such as two-time winner Gaultier, three-time champion Nick Matthew and World Championship runner-up Omar Mosaad competing in the Men’s draw, and 2013 winner Massaro, five-time winner Nicol David and World No.3 Raneem El Welily aiming to prevail in the Women’s event.
