Squash Classic takes place later this month

A stellar line-up of squash players are set to descend on the Docklands later this month when the Canary Wharf Classic takes place.

Commonwealth Games silver medallist James Wilstrop and world number eight Peter Barker will both be in action at the East Wintergarden from March 23-27.

Three-time world champion Nick Matthew will also play in the event and will look to defend his title after beating Wilstrop in the final last year.

“Maybe James and I should play one more time next year and then both retire,” joked Matthew after lifting the trophy in 2014.

The even takes place in a specially-built court in the heart of the Docklands and this year will be the 12th edition.

Tickets have already sold out but there is still space on a waiting list should any tickets become available.
