Paul Coll (pictured below) became the first New Zealander to win the title in March 2019, beating Egyptian Tarek Momen to claim the coveted trophy.  Last year – in a tournament delayed until November due to the COVID-19 pandemic – Coll returned to claim his second title beating another Egyptian (this time world No.1 Ali Farag) in a thrilling match on the final day.  That followed another memorable final in 2020 when Farag was again the loser in a showdown with follow countryman Mohamed El Shorbagy.

Coll is back in 2022 in search of a hat-trick of wins.  Now the world No.2 ranked men’s player after his 2021 exploits, Coll had this to say after gaining his second Canary Wharf Classic title: “The crowd make it and it’s my favourite venue to come to.  Thanks also to Canary Wharf Group.

“To have the event in such a special location I know all the players feel so privileged to come here and play.  Having it full every day from the first round is very special.  Tournament Director Tim Garner and the whole team make it such a brilliant event.”
