The Tasmanian Greens Member for Bass Kim Booth MP today welcomed the commencement of the Carlton Mid Aussie 15s cricket competition in Launceston at Aurora Stadium tomorrow.

“This is a very exciting competition, which is certain to reinvigorate interest in grass roots cricket in Northern Tasmania,” Mr Booth said.

“It’s great to see Ricky Ponting remains loyal to his home town by returning to play for the Star Bar Slashers.”

“I would encourage everyone to get along and see this new style of game, and to support grass roots cricket.”

“Grassroots sports competitions provide great local entertainment, and they play an important role in community building.”

“It’s also a really good way to engage kids with the game, and the best part is that it’s free.”
