Lu Ning (Chinese: 魯寧, born 1994 in Jilin) is a former professional snooker player from the People's Republic of China.

Career
Lu's first appearance in a ranking tournament was in the wildcard round of the 2012 World Open, where he defeated 1996 British Open winner Nigel Bond 5–4 in Haikou. He met Mark Selby in the first round and, despite taking the first two frames, Lu lost 3–5. Lu continued to show his talent in the next local ranking tournament, the 2012 China Open. He was awarded a wildcard to compete against Welsh player Jamie Jones, where Lu won 5–3. He produced a tremendous match by knocking out 2005 world snooker champion Shaun Murphy by 5–2, with two centuries. However, in the second round Ali Carter proved to be too tough for the Chinese player, winning 5–1.

In the 2012/2013 season Lu was awarded a place in the wildcard round for five ranking events, losing at this stage in four of them.[7] At the International Championship he beat Barry Pinches 6–5, before losing in the first round 6–4 to Ricky Walden.He played in all three of the new Asian Players Tour Championships, but could not advance beyond the third round in any of them to finish 45th on the Asian Order of Merit.

In July 2013 he became the IBSF Under 21 World Champion, defeating Zhou Yuelong 9–4 in the final. He came through the wildcard round of the Wuxi Classic by beating Adam Duffy 5–3, before losing 5–1 to Matthew Stevens. His Under-21 title earned him a two-year main tour card starting with the 2014/2015 season. He failed to qualify for any ranking events besides the UK Championship and the Welsh Open for which all players on the tour gain automatic entry at the venue stage. Lu lost 6–2 to Stephen Maguire in the first round of the UK and 4–0 to Ricky Walden at the Welsh. He was placed world number 114 after his first season as a professional.

It was a similar story in the 2015/2016 season as Lu only reached the UK Championship and Welsh Open, losing in the first round of both. He was relegated from the tour at the end of the season due to being ranked 101st in the world, well outside of the top 64.
