Bas van Erp (Dutch pronunciation: [bɑs vɑn ɛrp]; 2 July 1979 – 3 April 2016) was a Dutch wheelchair tennis player.

He won two bronze medals at the 2004 Paralympic Games; one in the quad singles event and the other one in the quad doubles event. After the 2004 Games he was about to stop playing wheelchair tennis, because he became very ill. When he recovered he decided to reach the Paralympic Games one more time. He competed at the 2008 Summer Paralympics, as in 2004 in the quad singles event and the quad doubles event but didn't win a medal.

In daily life he was receptionist and accountant. He died in his house in Liempde at the age of 36.[1][2]
