TAMWORTH TO HOST SUMMER CELEBRATION OF CRICKET
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has encouraged the community of Tamworth to join the summer celebration of cricket in December as part of the Home Ground Cricket Tour.
Mr Anderson said “I am delighted that the Home Ground Cricket Tour will take over Number 1 Oval on the 20th and 21st of December to celebrate the sport of cricket and the role it plays in bringing people together across the whole of NSW.
“I invite the entire community to get along to this wonderful event to enjoy a great family day out with fantastic activities and entertainment.
“Tamworth is one of 27 locations across NSW to host the Home Ground Cricket Tour,” Mr Anderson said.
Supported by the NSW Government as part of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, the Home Ground Cricket Tour will give local clubs a taste of World Cup excitement.
This tour to Regional NSW will encourage people to secure their tickets now for a trip to Australia’s home of cricket, the Sydney Cricket Ground, which will host five games including Australia versus Sri Lanka on Sunday 8 March, followed by a quarter and a semi-final.
“This event will give people in our community an opportunity to view key pieces from the world-famous Bradman Museum and to get involved with the sport by taking part in hands-on activities conducted by Cricket NSW.
“There is no better time to be a cricket fan in NSW.
“I look forward to seeing people from across our region getting along to Number 1 Oval on Kable Avenue when the Home Ground Cricket Tour comes to town,” Mr Anderson concluded.
