Joel Makin joined the PSA World Tour in 2013 and has seen a rapid rise up through the PSA World Rankings ever since.
Makin’s first final appearance came in 2014 at the McWil & Euro Styl Gdansk Open but lost out to James Earles over four games. The Welshman then finished runner-up at the Swiss Open the following year when beaten to the title by Kristian Frost in straight games.
The Welshman then claimed his first PSA World Tour title at the City of Greater Bendigo International in 2015 when he downed Joshua Larkin in straight games in the final.
Makin continued to make consistent final appearances. A runner-up finish followed in the Pareti Open but Makin fell short of the main prize with Christophe Andre claiming the title after a four-game contest. He then secured back-to-back runner-up positions in both the Stotford Classic and Kent Open where he lost out to Charles Sharpes and Tom Ford respectively.
The Welshman broke inside the world’s top 50 for the first time in his career in 2017.
The year after, he went on to win the Kent Open after beating Joshua Masters in the final, before finishing runner-up to Tom Richards in the Nash Cup. He also finished runner-up in the Chicago Open, losing to Cesar Salazar in the final.
Makin made the semis of the Pittsburgh Open and the Irish Open in 2018, before going on to take victory in the Arnold Homes Tring Open, defeating Peter Creed in the final.
The Welshman made the quarter finals of both the Channel VAS Championships and the Qatar Classic at the end of 2018, and started well at the Tournament of Champions in 2019, but had to retire through injury.
