Richard Berens (28 January 1864 – 14 July 1909) was an English cricketer and barrister.

Berens was educated at Westminster School and Christ Church, Oxford, and qualified as a barrister at the Inner Temple in 1892.[1]

A club cricketer, he was invited to take part in two tours by English amateurs to the West Indies in 1894-95 and 1896-97 and one to North America in 1898. He played all of his first-class cricket career on these tours. He was a batsman, but his contributions were modest: the 37 and 50 he scored in the second match against Barbados on the first tour were the only innings in which he reached 25.[2]

He married Elizabeth Evelyn Gibbons on 3 December 1900.[3]
