Peter Barker Climbs To Career High World No.5

One of the most consistent players on the PSA World Tour, Barker has reached at least the quarter-finals in 13 PSA World Series events in a row since January last year - a feat unequalled by any other player.

"I'm delighted to hear I've moved up to number five - it's a goal I've wanted to achieve for some time," said the 29-year-old Londoner on hearing the news.

"I'm pleased my consistency has paid off, but it's now time to progress further than the quarter finals and challenge the guys above me!

"Obviously, a continued thanks to those who support me - you know who you are - and without you, I wouldn't be at a career-high."
