Cricket Tasmania welcomes the State Government funding pledged in the 2019-20 State Budget.

In addition to the Government’s ongoing support for the Tasmanian Tigers, the funding will both enable Cricket Tasmania's Female Program to continue its rapid growth this summer, as well as take professional cricket to all regions of the state once again with the Hobart Hurricanes WBBL and BBL teams set to return to North & North-West Tasmania from this October.

"Our Female Program couldn't have undergone the improvement it did last year without the support of the Government," said Cricket Tasmania Chief Executive, Nick Cummins.

"We’re pleased that the Government shares our view that as Tasmania's team, the Hurricanes should be accessible to all Tasmanians, be it in the north or south of the State."

Cricket Tasmania looks forward to further building its partnership with all areas of Government into the future.
