Pierre "Perrie" Mans (born 14 October 1940) is a retired professional snooker player from South Africa.

Mans first won the South African professional championship in 1965, and went on to win it 19 times in total.

His career peaked in 1978, when he reached the final of the world championships, losing 25-18 to Ray Reardon. He reached number two in the world rankings as a result - early rankings were based purely on the world championships of the 3 previous seasons.
