Winning the 2015 Professional World Indoor Singles Title for an impressive all time record 6th time was the highlite of that season for Alex. Add to this all his other WBT Titles plus Commonwealth Games Gold Medals in 2014 tells us all why he is one of the most respected and dedicated players to come up against.

With season end adjustments and perhaps not one of his best seasons Alex has slipped one place to World No. 3. Alex Marshall MBE will be one to watch as he will be all out this coming season to regain lost places in the World Indoor Rankings.
