Club Update September 2017
A lot of working has been happening at KGV and around the club. The new Glenorchy Cricket Players Pavilion fit out is almost complete and will be ready for round 1 this season. This facility based in the KGV Anfield St Grandstand will provide high quality facilities for our players and umpires. The fit out has been designed to meet Cricket Australia Tier 3 guidelines which is based on meeting CA requirements for Futures League or Women's League matches. This facility will be the base for our home teams and umpires, it also provides a great base for training and hosting milo cricket, special events and clinics at the ground. Umpires will be well catered for as well as kitchenette and storage facilities. Glenorchy Council is completing the works and Cricket Tasmania has provided funding to allow us to complete some specific cricket fit outs including IT, scoreboards screens etc.
We have also worked hard with the Council and Cricket Tasmania to secure support and funding to develop a second turf cricket facility in the region. Works have started on the development of Shoobridge Park into a back up home ground to support the growth of cricket the region. Shoobridge park works include a new turf wicket block, ground extension and new fencing. Funding for the works includes grants from Cricket Australia and a significant grant from the State Government.
