Chan Ho Ling, (Chinese: 陳浩鈴; Jyutping: can4 hou5 ling4; born May 20, 1988 in Hong Kong) is a professional squash player who represents Hong Kong. She reached a career-high world ranking of World No. 16 in May 2012.[1][2]

Hong Kong's Joey Chan has made great strides on the Tour ever since she first joined back in 2003.

Her consistent performances at events meant that she broke the world's top 100 in 2006 and she claimed creditable semi-final finishes at the NSC Tour 12 No2 and the Taiwan Open the following year.

Her first Tour title came at the Indian Challenger No.4 in 2010 and she went on to pick up the China Open and the Chairman's Cup in September of that year.

She made it into the top 20 in the world in 2011 when she bested Aisling Blake in the final of the Macau Open to lift the crown and she toppled the number one seed Rachael Grinham to take home the Challenge Cup title a year later.

On 7 October 2013, at the 2013 East Asian Games in Tianjin, China, Joey Chan defeated China's Li Dongjin 3-1 for the women's singles title in squash.[3]

Various runner-up finishes followed for Chan over the next few years before she ended her 2014/15 season in style by lifting the NZ International Classic in June 2015 with a win over Misaki Koboyashi in the showpiece event.
