In 1985, he played second for Al Hackner, for which they won he won his first Brier, and World Championships, that same season. Tetley later moved to southern Ontario to play for second Ed Werenich. In 1990, Tetley won his second Brier, this time representing (southern) Ontario with Werenich. That team also won the World Championships. In 1994, he joined Wayne Middaugh's new rink, to play as his second. They won the Brier in 1998, and later Tetley picked up his third World Championship.
