Gervys Rignold Hazlitt, commonly known as Gerry (4 September 1888, Enfield, New South Wales – 30 October 1915, Parramatta, New South Wales) was an Australian cricketer who played in 9 Tests from 1907 to 1912.

A right-arm medium-pace and off-spin bowler and useful lower-order batsman, Hazlitt toured England with the Australian team in 1912. In his last Test, against England at The Oval, he took 7 for 25 in the second innings.[1] In his first Test, against England at Sydney in 1907-08, he made 34 not out and put on 56 for the ninth wicket in 39 minutes with Tibby Cotter to give Australia victory by two wickets.[2]

He played for Victoria from 1905-06 to 1910-11, then moved to Sydney to take up a position teaching at The King's School, Parramatta,[3] and played for Central Cumberland District Cricket Club and New South Wales in 1911-12 and 1912-13.

Born with a weak heart, Hazlitt died after suffering a heart attack in 1915, aged 27.
