History

The World Grand Prix was held as a non-ranking event in March 2015 in Llandudno, Wales, for the top 32 players on the World Grand Prix list. The list was based on a one-year ranking system.

From 2016, the World Grand Prix has been held as a ranking event.

In 2019, the tournament was included in the newly created Coral Cup series, and branded as "Coral World Grand Prix".
