EJ Tackett, one of the most high-profile players on the PBA Tour, has signed a 10-year contract extension to stay with Motiv, the company announced Tuesday.

Tackett, who has been with Motiv for seven years, is a 13-time PBA Tour champion and was the PBA Player of the Year in 2016.

“The people at Motiv are like family to me,” Tackett said in a release. “Ten years means I don’t have to worry about anything but going out there and winning for another decade. I love throwing the best balls in the world and representing such amazing people.”

Tackett, 28, has had tremendous success on the PBA Tour dating back to his first title at the 2015 Lubbock Sports Open. His 13 titles include two majors, the 2016 PBA World Championship and the 2017 PBA Tournament of Champions.

The powerful right-hander has been in a bit of a title slump recently, however, as he hasn’t won since the summer of 2019. Tackett’s last title came at the PBA Tour Finals in July 2019.

Despite that drought, he has still proven to be one of the best on the tour. He finished in the Top 16 of all four majors in 2020, including making the show at the PBA Players Championship (second) and the PBA World Championship (third).

Tackett will also donate $10,000 to the Epilepsy Foundation this week in support of his brother Zac, who also competes on the PBA Tour and lives with epilepsy.


Tackett recently released his first signature bowling ball, the limited edition Motiv VIP, and $1 from each ball sold will be donated to the foundation. BowlerX also donated all proceeds from the pre-sales of the ball.

The Epilepsy Foundation will host a Stream for Epilepsy event on Thursday where Tackett will present the check and talk about Zac’s experience with epilepsy. The stream will happen on Twitch at 4 p.m. Eastern on Thursday.
