Katy Dunne (born 16 February 1995 in Hemel Hempstead) is a British tennis player.
Dunne has won five singles and seven doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. On 28 May 2018, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 212, and in October 2017 she peaked at No. 166 in the doubles rankings.
In March 2016, Dunne won a major non-ITF title at Naremburn, Sydney. As the No. 2 seed she defeated Shérazad Reix, 6-3, 6-2 to claim the $3,200 first prize at the prestigious North Shore Open.
Dunne made her WTA Tour main-draw debut at the 2014 Aegon Classic. Having defeated the tenth and second seeds in qualifying, Alizé Lim and Tímea Babos, respectively, she faced world number 44 Camila Giorgi in the first round, but had to retire with a hip injury after only three games of the third set.
Dunne was later given a wildcard to compete in Wimbledon qualifying for the third year running, but lost in the first round to the two-time quarterfinalist Tamira Paszek in straight sets.
