Community cricket in Tweed has received a funding boost, with the announcement of the successful projects in the final round of NSW ICC T20 World Cup Cricket Legacy Fund.
Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said the construction of cricket nets at Reg Dalton Oval for the Cudgen Cricket Club will improve the participation experience for community cricket participants.
“This final round of funding will see grassroots cricket in Tweed share in the $2 million awarded to projects across the State,” Mr Provest said.
“This will help leave a lasting legacy for generations to come, well beyond the T20 World Cups. Cricket players of all ages and abilities in Tweed will benefit from this NSW Government investment.”
T20 cricket has given new life to the game, keeping kids interested and attracting new fans. It is fantastic to see the final round of the T20 World Cup Cricket Legacy Fund deliver projects to regional communities, giving country towns the same quality facilities as those in the city and improving participation rates in the sport.
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be held in 2022, with seven matches proposed to be held in Sydney. Fixtures and ticketing details will be available in 2021. For more information visit: https://www.sport.nsw.gov.au/t20worldcupfund
