Nick Pesch (born 25 June 1974) is a former professional Australian rules footballer who played with the Adelaide Football Club and the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Pesch, who played in the 1993 Woodville-West Torrens SANFL premiership team, made his AFL debut late in the 1994 AFL season and put together regular games in 1995, appearing 15 times.[1] During the 1995 season he kicked four goals in a match against Geelong. A rover, he was traded to Melbourne for Clay Sampson after struggling to have an impact in 1996.[2] After one year at Melbourne, Pesch returned to Woodville-West Torrens and won their 'Best and Fairest' award in 1998. He is a member of the Woodville-West Torrens official 'Team of the Decade', on the interchange bench.[3]
