The London Squash Classic is a new event replacing the Canary Wharf Squash Classic on the PSA World Tour calendar. 

Over the last two decades the Canary Wharf Classic has established itself as one of the most highly anticipated events in the squash calendar.  The title has been held aloft by world champions such as Mohamed ElShorbagy and Nick Matthew, as well as former world No.1 James Willstrop.  In 2023 New Zealand’s Paul Coll took the honours, becoming a three-time winner after coming from behind to beat Wales’ Joel Makin 3-1 in the final.  

The proposed refurbishments to the East Wintergarden venue – where the Canary Wharf Squash Classic has taken place since its launch in 2004 – are such that it can no longer host a squash event.  A new era commences in spring 2024 when the Canary Wharf Squash Classic is replaced by the London Squash Classic.  Taking place from Wednesday 27 March to Monday 1 April the first round (on Wednesday 27 March) will take place at Coolhurst Squash Club with the second round matches onwards (Thursday 28 to Monday 1 April) hosted at the famous Alexandra Palace.  The new event will features a men’s and women’s draw.
