Christopher "Chris" Wilkinson (born 5 January 1970 in Southampton, Hampshire) is a former tennis player from England.

Turning professional in 1989, Wilkinson represented Great Britain at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, where he was defeated in the first round by Morocco's Younes El Aynaoui. The right-hander reached his highest singles ATP-ranking on 13 September 1993, when he became the World No. 114.

Wilkinson currently teaches tennis at Lee-on-the-Solent Tennis Club (LOST Club) on the south coast of England, while living in Rowlands Castle "the posh part of Leigh Park". He coaches several young prospects at the club as well as performing alongside Martin Lee on the club's NCL team (finishing 3rd in their first season).
