Russ Bray is a retired English darts referee who works for the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) as an ambassador.

Known as "The Voice", due to his unique style of calling and his shouty voice, he was inducted into the PDC Hall of Fame in 2024.

Russ previously worked as a police traffic officer. Bray retired from being a referee following the 2023-24 PDC World Darts Championship final following a 28 year career.

According to Bray himself, his calling career began one night when the regular caller failed to show for a county match.

Bray was then contracted to call for the PDC in 1996 and was given his debut at the World Matchplay in Blackpool.

He was the caller when Phil Taylor hit the PDC's first-ever televised nine-darter and the world's second ever live televised nine-darter in 2002 at the same event.

He has called eight more nine-darters live on TV since then including the first televised nine-darter outside of Europe by Mervyn King in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Bray was a county player for Hertfordshire and subsequently played on the pro circuit.

He teamed up with Eric Bristow to win the Norway and Finland pairs.

Bray also hit the bullseye on a standard dartboard from 10 feet, outdoors, on Blackpool's North Pier, thus achieving a Guinness World Record in the process. Bray beat the day's previous best of 9' 6" which was achieved by fellow PDC official Scott Gibling.

In November 2023, Bray announced that he would retire at the end of the 2024 PDC World Darts Championship, but would continue to work with the PDC as an ambassador.

His last televised ranking match was the 2024 world final, in which Luke Humphries defeated Luke Littler to win his first world title.

He has since then refereed at the 2024 Bahrain Darts Masters.

On the occasion of his retirement, Bray was inducted into the PDC Hall of Fame by PDC chief executive Matt Porter.
