Vassilis Lipiridis (alternate spellings: Vasilis, Lypiridis) (Greek: Βασίλης Λυπηρίδης; born January 1, 1967 in Edessa, Greece) is a retired Greek professional basketball player. At 2.02 m (6 ft 7 1⁄2 in) tall, he played at the power forward position.
Lipiridis played with great success as a defensive power forward with Aris, winning with them, the Greek League championship six times (1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991) and the Greek Cup 5 times (1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992).
He also took part in 3 consecutive EuroLeague Final Fours of the FIBA European Champions Cup: Ghent 1988, Munich 1989, and Zaragoza 1990. While he played there, Aris joined the elite of European basketball clubs, but a European-wide title did not come for Lipiridis until much later, in 1993, when the club won the 2nd-tier level FIBA Cup Winners' Cup in Torino.
