Arthur Luck (19 January 1916 – 24 February 1987) was an English cricketer. Luck was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm medium pace. He was born at Little Billing, Northamptonshire.

Luck made two first-class appearances for Northamptonshire, both against Warwickshire in the 1937 County Championship and 1938 County Championship.[1] In his first match against Warwickshire, he scored 18 runs in Northamptonshire's first-innings, before becoming one of seven wickets for Eric Hollies. In their second-innings, he was dismissed for the same score by George Paine. In Warwickshire's first-innings, he took the wicket of Aubrey Hill.[2] In his second match against the county, Luck scored 15 runs in Northamptonshire's first-innings, before being dismissed by Eric Hollies, while in their second-innings the same bowler dismissed him for a single run. In Warwickshire's first-innings, Luck took the wicket of Reg Santall.[3] Warwickshire won both matches.
