Darryl Hill (born 30 April 1996 in Leeds, Yorkshire) is an English-born professional Manx snooker player.

In 2014, Hill entered the EBSA European Under-21 Snooker Championships as the number one ranked entrant, but lost in the third round to Ashley Carty. The following year, Hill made it to the final, where he defeated Louis Heathcote 6–3 to win the 2015 EBSA European Under-21 Snooker Championships; as a result, he was given a two-year card on the professional World Snooker Tour for the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 seasons.

Hill beat Robert Milkins 6–4 to qualify for the 2015 International Championship. On his debut at the main stage of a ranking event, he was defeated 6–2 by Jimmy Robertson. He played at the UK Championship and Welsh Open for the first time, losing 6–3 toThepchaiya Un-Nooh in the former and 4–1 to Graeme Dott in the latter. Hill played in the China Open, due to Mark Selbywithdrawing, and won a first-round ranking event match for the first time by beating James Wattana 5–3, before losing by a reversal of this scoreline to Dominic Dale.

Hill lost his first 12 matches of the 2016/2017 season, before finally picking up a win in February at the Welsh Open as he beat Dechawat Poomjaeng 4–1. He lost 4–1 to Ali Carterin the next round. Hill was eliminated in the third round of the Shoot-Out by Li Hang and will drop off the tour at the end of the season.
