Manchester Open 2023

Ali Farag and Nour El Tayeb completed an Egyptian Family Double as they triumphed in the finals at the National Squash Centre in Manchester.

It was a day to remember in Manchester for married couple Ali Farag and Nour El Tayeb as they  picked up the Manchester Open 2023 Silver event titles, beating Karim Abdel Gawad and Nele Gilis  in the finals at the National Squash Centre.

It was the first time in six years that the couple have both been successful in the same tournament, with the last occasion coming at the 2017 U.S. Open.

The men’s final was a rematch of the recent PSA World Championships final as Ali Farag took on compatriot Karim Abdel Gawad and repeated his success in Chicago to claim a 32nd PSA Tour title.

El Tayeb was a winner in 2020 at the Manchester Open and came up against first-time finalist Nele Gilis as she captured a second title.
