Cricket Tasmania have launched a survey to capture information on facility projects happening at your cricket club.

This survey can be completed at any time throughout the year with the purpose of alerting Cricket Tasmania Community Cricket staff to projects that you either have shovel ready, partway completed, or just on your wish list.

By capturing this information, the community cricket staff at Cricket Tasmania can provide effective support in the form of face to face/over the phone consultations, allowing us to share facility guidelines and relevant funding available. At the very least, this information will also allow CT to be further in touch with developments happening within the cricket community.
