Barrett is the best male tenpin bowler the United Kingdom has ever produced. He was inducted in the UK Tenpin Hall of Fame in 2013 and as of this week has won eight titles on the Professional Bowlers Tour in the USA, US Open Champion in 2018, been a World Bowler of the year three times, Gold medalist in Youth World Championships and has won more major titles than anyone in our country, ever. If that is not enough, he is also the European Captain in the Weber Cup, a Trans-Atlantic USA verses Europe by Matchroom sport and seen on TV.
Dom’s progress in the European then World game and particularly the Professional Bowlers Tour has been outstanding. Over the history of the sport we had just one player in the early seventies who had tried at what many consider the pinnacle of the sport and the American Pro Tour. ONE PIN stopped Great Britain’s Chris Buck becoming the first to make a PBA TV show back in 1973 in the Fair Lanes Open.
40 years later Stuart Williams became our first player to make it through the trials and play on the tour, Dom not far behind joined and both players made history on the same day. Stuart Williams won his first PBA title in the Bayer Viper Open. In doing so, he became the first player from England to win a title on the standard PBA Tour in North America. Shortly after, Dom Barrett won the Scorpion Open at the same event.
Dom stated afterwards “It’s a fantastic feeling,” “I kind of got to go through some of the emotions with Stu after he won his title, and that gave me a little insight about what was going to happen to me if I got this far.
