Tournament director Zubair Khan hailed The London Open Squash 2017 Championships a great success after it ended on Sunday.

The event, which took place at Cumberland Lawn Tennis Club on Alvanley Gardens, started on November 28 and concluded on December 3.

World number 40 Declan James, who was the number two seed, saw off top seed Tom Richards (world number 35) in the men’s final on Sunday.

In the women’s event, number one seed Emily Whitlock, 12 in the world, unfortunately had to pull out of the final due to injury, so New Zealander Amanda Landers-Murphy took the crown in West Hampstead.

Khan, a former world number eight in the sport, said: “It’s been a great week with brilliant matches and it was a successful tournament.

“We had great support from the crowd and as tournament director, I would like to thank the spectators and all of my sponsors like Aspect Capital and many others. Hopefully 2018 will be even bigger.”

As well as Aspect Capital, Afghan Connection, Heathcote & Ivory and Hellman & Friedman LC helped support the annual event.

One-time world number two Hiddy Jahan was a special guest at the tournament while Aspect Capital CEO Anthony Todd again offered his support.
