The China Open is the longest running of the current world ranking events staged in China, dating back to 2005. In that year it was won by Ding Junhui, aged just 18 at the time, who beat Stephen Hendry in the final. That victory for the young Chinese ace proved the catalyst for a vast explosion of interest in snooker, which has made it one one of the country’s most popular sports today. The tournament is staged in Beijing and brings 64 players to the Chinese capital to compete for the iconic golden trophy. The 2016 event was won by Judd Trump, beating Ricky Walden in the final.
