John Lowe

Three Time Darts World Champion

Three time World Darts Champion John Lowe was one of the best known and highly skilled players of the 1970s and 1980s. Lowe was the first player to win the World Championship in three separate decades in 1979, 1987 and 1993. With a career spanning well over 40 years, John is wonderful darts speaker, recounting anecdotal tales of his time as the best player in the world as well as delivering invaluable advice on how to achieve goals and realise ambitions.

Very much the gentleman of the game, John enjoyed a longstanding rivalry with Eric Bristow, meeting him six time in various semi-finals and finals of major competitions. It wasn’t until his fourth meeting with Bristow that he was victorious, winning the 1987 World Championships. Lowe achieved the snooker equivalent of Golf’s hole-in-one or a 147 break in Snooker when he became the first darts player on television to score a nine dart finish. John won a staggering £102,000 for this achievement.

During question and answer sessions, Lowe enjoys to reminisce about the time he spent as one of the most formidable darts players in the world. As a darts speaker, John’s compelling and engaging tales ensure he entertains audiences and interacts with listeners to make them feel a part of the action.

In addition to John’s three world titles, he also won two World Masters titles, two British Open titles and two World Cup singles titles. Lowe also played England over 100 times, captaining the side for seven years, in which his team were unbeaten. Lowe was always credited for his decorum and sportsmanship at the oche, often in contrast to the gifted yet arrogant players of the time. Bucking the trend by looking after his weight, John still drank alcohol whilst playing but showed drive and determination to stay fit and healthy in order to achieve peak performance, a topic which often features in John’s talks as a darts speaker.

A wonderful sports speaker, John is a consummate professional who enjoys talking as an after dinner speaker or making guest appearances for darts fans around the world.
