Paul Coll takes on James Willstrop in the Canary Wharf Classic

Squash on Social: Inside the PSA World Tour


The 2016 Canary Wharf Classic has taken centre stage on the PSA World Tour this week with some sensational action lighting up the iconic setting of London’s East Wintergarden.

Away from the court, the stars of the PSA World Tour have been active as always on social media so we thought we would have a look at what they’ve been up to – starting with THAT rally during Paul Coll and James Willstrop’s stunning first round encounter (added below for your pleasure of course!).

Former World No.1 Willstrop may have been on the wrong end of the point but the Yorkshireman was effusive in his praise of the athletic New Zealander Coll, whose superman dives have gone viral with over 800,000 views on the PSA World Tour Facebook page in addition to being featured on leading media platforms such as BBC Sport and Bleacher Report.

Everybody is talking about it, and we agree with former Women’s World No.2 Jenny Duncalf. If you have not yet seen it, do so above – you won’t be disappointed!

Did anybody spot a 6’3” Australian sporting some new ‘sneakers’ hanging around some of London’s biggest landmarks? If so, it was Cameron Pilley who took some time out of his busy schedule during the Canary Wharf Classic to indulge in some sightseeing.

United States No.1 Amanda Sobhy swapped her squash racket for a microphone as she prepared to sing the USA national anthem ahead of an ice hockey game. If her singing voice is as good as her squash then the crowd were in for a treat!

Three-time World Champion Ramy Ashour stepped up his recovery from a hamstring injury ahead of the Allam British Open by teaming up with Ireland’s Arthur Gaskin, with the pair putting each other through their paces in a training session.

Daryl Selby with a pearl of wisdom following a narrow defeat. We loved every minute of
this Selby stunner.

A touch of class from Pilley after his Canary Wharf Classic quarter-final clash with Simon Rösner was cut short due to an injury to the German. We all wish Rösner a speedy recovery.

Canada’s Samantha Cornett shares a lovely picture with her grandmother to mark #InternationalWomensDay earlier this week. If you missed our look at some of the most influential and pioneering women ever to play the sport, you can catch up here.
