The 2005 China Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 26 March – 3 April 2005 at the Haidian Stadium in Beijing, China.[1] This was the penultimate ranking event of the 2004/2005 season, preceding the 2005 World Championship.

The event was last held in 2002, where Mark Williams won the tournament by defeating Anthony Hamilton 9–8.[2]

Ding Junhui won in the final 9–5 against Stephen Hendry. Ding became the second youngest player after Ronnie O'Sullivan to capture a ranking title.[3] Along with several other Chinese players, Ding gave up his normal tournament entry position in order to accept an offer to enter the tournament as a wild-card player and thus he did not receive either prize money or ranking points for his tournament win.[2]
