Tom Derickx (born 7 December 1987) is a former professional Australian rules footballer who played for the Richmond Football Club and Sydney Swans in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Derickx was drafted to Richmond with the 63rd selection in 2010 AFL Draft from the Claremont Football Club in the WAFL. At the completion of the 2013 season, Derickx was delisted by Richmond. However, he was later signed by the Sydney Swans as a delisted free agent. Derickx made his Swans debut in Round 2, 2014 against Collingwood. Derickx's biggest battle came in Round 8, 2014 when the Swans played Hawthorn where he rucked the whole game against Ben McEvoy and David Hale and was successful as the Swans got up by 19 points. After a successful first half of the year Derickx was dropped in favour of Mike Pyke for the remainder of the year. In 2015, he only played one game for Sydney, spending most of the season playing in the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL).[1] He announced his retirement from the AFL at the conclusion of the 2016 season.[2]

Originally from Dunsborough in Western Australia's south-west, he is also a part-time fashion model.[3]
