Dennis Gamsy (born 17 February 1940 in Glenwood, Natal) is a former South African cricketer who played in two Tests as a wicketkeeper in 1970 against Australia.

He played for Natal from 1958-59 to 1972-73.

In 1970 he became one of the first prominent South African cricketers to speak out in favour of mixed-race sport in South Africa.[1] Shortly afterwards he founded the Cricket Club of South Africa, one of the country's first multi-racial teams.[2]
