Gavin Courtney Tonge (born 13 January 1983) is a West Indian cricketer. He is a right-arm fast-medium bowler and has represented West Indies in One Day International and Test cricket, as well as playing first class cricket for Antigua and Leeward Islands.
Tonge began his first-class career in the 2002–03 season, having played in U-19 matches since 2000. He played his first game for Leeward Islands on 28 February 2003. He returned single-figure wicket tallies for his first five seasons, without a five-wicket-haul, however in the 2008–09 season he took 44 wickets at 25.09, including four five-wicket-hauls.
