Cricket club’s grant a win for local community

Minister for Sport and Recreation, Nic Street and Tony Allanby, Vice President of the Old Beach Cricket Club

The Old Beach Cricket Club has proven itself to be an exceptional offfield performer, taking advantage of a $50,000 grant for a training facility and improving amenities for spectators as well as the wider community.

The club plays a role in encouraging the local community to be healthy and active, fielding teams across various grades in the Southern Cricket Association.

Vice-President of the Old Beach Cricket Club, Tony Allanby said, “The Club applied for and received a $50,000 grant to upgrade its training nets through the state government’s Improving the Playing Field grants program. “When that project was completed well within the original budget, the Club requested and received approval from Active Tasmania to use the balance of the funds to build a shelter and provide seating for supporters.”
