Barry Hawkins is a professional snooker player from Kent, England, born on 23 April 1979.

He reached the top 32 in the rankings in 2004/2005, having reached the semi-finals of that year's Welsh Open, as well as 3 other last-16 results.

In 2005/2006, he reached the semi-finals of the Grand Prix and Welsh Open, and also beat the highly-rated Ding Junhui to qualify for the World Championship for the first time. This has cemented Hawkins' place in the top 16 of the rankings for the next season.

At the World Championship, Barry faced former champion Ken Doherty, but struggled to perform in the intimidating Crucible Theatre and lost 10-1. He told the BBC that "I just couldn't perform and I don't know why... I'm gutted after such a good season to have played like that"

Although Hawkins is left-handed, he plays shots requiring a rest with his right hand.
