In case you didn’t know, Ash Barty is currently married to Australian professional golfer Garry Kissick in a private ceremony. They have been dating since 2017. Barty first met Kissick in 2016, at the Brookwater Golf Club in Queensland, Australia. She shared a picture of her and her new husband on their wedding day in Queensland in a single post on Instagram on July 30, 2022. “Husband & Wife,” she wrote as the photo caption on her wedding day.

An Inside Look Into Bart and Kissick’s Relationship
Barty and Kissick have been going strong for a few years. Kissick works at the Brookwater Golf Club, where they met for the first time in 2016. The tennis player was going to play a round of golf, but she didn’t know that her life was about to change forever. Barty and Kissick liked each other right away and started to hang out together.
But they didn’t tell anyone about their relationship until 2017 when Ash invited Gary to the Newcombe Awards, where she won Australia’s top tennis prize. Gary Kissick and Ash Barty are both from Queensland, Australia.
Last year, when they got engaged, it was all over the news. At the time, Ash posted a picture of them on Instagram with the caption “Future Husband” and an emoji of a ring and a heart.
Barty has always said that Gary was a big part of her success as a tennis player. Barty talked to Vogue in January about her fiance and how much he meant to her.
“He’s the best person to be around if you want to take a break from tennis and have fun and laugh when you’re practicing… “I wouldn’t want to go on this adventure with anybody else,” she said.
