Balbir Singh Sr. (born October 19, 1924 in Haripur Khalsa) is a retired field hockey player from India, who was a member of three Olympic gold medal winning teams, in London (1948), Helsinki (1952) and Melbourne (1956). He was born in Haripur Khalsa, Punjab.

He coached the Indian team for the 1971 Men's Hockey World Cup in which India won the silver medal. He was the manager of the Indian team for the 1975 Men's Hockey World Cup which India won.

He saw a movie on India's 1936 Olympic Hockey Team's triumph and it got etched in his mind for ever. He was deeply inspired by Dhyan Chand's jugglery with the hockey stick. Eventually, he played in the same position, in which Dhyan Chand played: center forward.
