Glenn Andrew Bishop (born 25 February 1960 in North Adelaide, South Australia) is a former Australian and South Australian cricketer who represented Australia in two ODIs, playing as a right-handed batsman.

At the age of 17, he scored 129 and 101 for Salisbury Second XI in Adelaides suburban competition, becoming the first two score a century in each innings for Salisbury. He made his first-class debut in 1982/83 for South Australia, primarily as an opening batsman, and was on the fringes of Australian selection in the mid-1980s. He made his ODI debut in January 1987 against Pakistan at the WACA Ground in the Benson & Hedges Perth Challenge series as an opening batsman. He scored only six from twenty balls, and took his only catch to dismiss Rameez Raja as Pakistan won the match off the second last ball with only one wicket in hand. He played his second and final ODI at the same venue two days later against the West Indies, this time at number five, managing only 7 from 29 deliveries.
