A.J. "Jim" Alldis (16 April 1916 – 24 September 1995) was an English cricket scorer and manager.

Jim Alldis managed the Middlesex Cricket School from 1957 through to his retirement in 1980, originally at Alexandra Palace and subsequently at Finchley. He succeeded Patsy Hendren as the county scorer in 1960, until he retired from this role in 1968. He was succeeded by Jim Sims.

He was a member of the Lord's groundstaff, before the Second World War, before playing club cricket for Paddington and Finchley. One of his proudest achievements was being awarded his Middlesex county cap at the age of 70 - at bowls. His son, also known as Jim, played county cricket for Middlesex in 1970 and has hosted touring Middlesex junior teams in Devon.
