Timothy Duncan Groenewald (born 10 January 1984) is a South African cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler who currently plays for Somerset. He was born in Pietermaritzburg.

Groenewald first represented the Warwickshire Second XI in the 2004 season, as a 20-year-old. After one further season as a Second XI bowler, including a run to the Semi-final of the Second XI Trophy of 2005, Groenewald made his County Championship debut in April 2006, in which he picked up two wickets. He continued to play for the first team on a semi-regular basis, and was part of the Warwickshire team which played host to the touring West Indian A cricket team in July/August 2006.

Groenewald was part of the Warwickshire team which won the Second XI Trophy in the 2006 season. He is a lower-order/tailend batsman. He signed for Derbyshire in October 2008 after his Warwickshire contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

He enjoyed a good first season with Derbyshire in 2009, taking 34 first-class wickets and was rewarded with a new contract which was to see him through to the end of the 2010 season.[1]

On 20 June 2014, Somerset announced the signing of Groenewald on loan for the remainder of the season and at the end of which he signed a three-year permanent contract.[2]

Tim had a solid 2015 with the ball, and helped Somerset to victory at Trent Bridge against Nottinghamshire with an impressive performance.
