He has attended dozens of PSA & WISPA events on the formal calendar, acting as TR and officiating for countless local events in the Montreal area. He has officiated outside of Canada in a number of countries, including Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Denmark, Qatar, and the USA.
Barry has contributed to numerous Officiating Committee projects over the years, as well as being the editor of “The Squash Official” newsletter for the past 16 seasons. Finally, he is currently a member of the WSF Rules sub-committee that is presently reviewing the rules of the game.
