Reginald Routledge (born 12 June 1920) is a former English cricketer. Routledge was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm medium pace. He was born in North Kensington, London.

Routledge made his first-class debut for Middlesex against Somerset in the 1946 County Championship. He didn't play first-class cricket the following season, playing two Minor Counties Championship fixtures for Devon instead,[1] but he played first-class cricket for Middlesex again from 1948 to 1954.[2] Routledge played a total of 65 first-class matches, including one for the Marylebone Cricket Club in 1951 against Essex.[3] As a batsman at first-class level he was initially a tailender, before developing into a middle-order batsman.[4] In 64 first-class matches for Middlesex, he scored 1,305 runs at a batting average of 16.51, with five half centuries and two centuries.[5] His highest score of 121 came against Worcestershire in 1953.[6] An occasional bowler, Routledge took 38 wickets with his medium pace at a bowling average of 41.57, with best figures of 4/29.[7] Routledge was also an occasional player for the Middlesex Second XI in the Minor Counties Championship.[1] He was released by the county following a poor 1954 season.
