The 2017 Paul Hunter Classic world ranking event ran from August 22 to 27. Michael White won the title, beating Shaun Murphy 4-2 in the final.

Staged at the Stadthalle venue in the town of Fürth near Nuremburg in Germany, the tournament brings together many of the top professional players with leading local amateurs. The Paul Hunter Classic, named after three-time Masters champion Hunter who died in 2006, started off as a pro-am in 2004 and became a European Tour event in 2010 and then a full world ranking event. Snooker has a growing following in Germany and fans come to Fürth from around the country to enjoy watching their heroes.
