Kathryn Anne Blackwell (born 31 August 1983) is an Australian cricketer. Blackwell was born in Wagga Wagga, but raised in Yenda, a small rural town outside of Griffith, NSW. She and her identical twin sister Alex Blackwell were part of the Australian national team that won the 2005 Women's Cricket World Cup in South Africa. In the 2005-06 season she played for the Wellington Blaze in the State League.

When asked about the frequent comparisons in the Australian media of the Blackwell twins to male cricketers, she said, "We look up to them a lot, but female cricketers should be recognised for themselves, not as the equivalent of Mark Waugh or Steve Waugh or Matthew Hayden or anybody."[1]
