Player Info

Hailing from Harold Wood, Englishman Peter Barker is one of the most consistent performers on the PSA World Tour. Barker was selected for the senior England Team at the World Team Championships in 2008 and from there has not looked back. He won bronze at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi after defeating Mohd Azlan Iskandar, and also came close to knocking out the eventual tournament winner, Ramy Ashour, in the 2012 US Open quarter-final after securing match point, but the Egyptian managed to turn things around. He had a good 2013, defeating Nick Matthew for only the second time in his career at the Canary Wharf Classic, before losing to James Willstrop in the final. August 2013 brought Barker his first PSA International 50 title at the Colombian Open after defeating Omar Mosaad 3-1. Barker was difficult to beat in 2014, amassing a quarter-final or higher finish in the opening six PSA World Tour events of the year. The Englishman, alongside his partner Alison Waters, managed to secure a silver medal in the Commonwealth Games Mixed Doubles event, losing out to David Palmer and Rachael Grinham in the final. Barker did taste success at the Bluenose Classic in November 2014, defeating Miguel Angel Rodriguez 3-0 with a powerful performance.
