Kirsten Wall (born November 27, 1975 as Kirsten Harmark) is a Canadian curler from Milton, Ontario. She was the alternate player on the Jennifer Jones rink which represented Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics and captured a gold medal.

In 1995 she won the Ontario provincial junior curling championship as a skip earning her team the right to represent Ontario at the 1995 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. She lost in the final that year to Kelly MacKenzie (Scott).

A number of years later, Wall joined the Sherry Middaugh team, first as her alternate, and then in 2002 as her third. In 2003, Wall won the Canada Cup of Curling as third for Middaugh. Wall played in her first Tournament of Hearts in 2004 after not having played in two previous trip as Middaugh's alternate. The team lost in the semi-final to Quebec's Marie-France Larouche. In 2008, the team went to the Hearts again, losing in the semi-final to Manitoba's Jennifer Jones.

Wall left the Middaugh team in 2010 to form her own rink with Hollie Nicol, Danielle Inglis and Jill Mouzar. The team lasted for two seasons.
