Wendouree Electorate – Constituency Question

Click here for video

Ms ADDISON (Wendouree) (14:43): My question is for the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, regarding the upcoming Women’s Big Bash League matches to be held at the magnificent Eastern Oval on 13 and 14 November.

I am so excited about welcoming some of the world’s best cricketers to Ballarat and seeing the next generation be inspired by our Renegades stars, like Jess Duffin. Will the minister please provide an overview of how these four WBBL matches will benefit the Ballarat community and our local economy?

Ballarat has world-class sporting facilities, and we love to host elite sporting events, including AFL, A-League, Super Netball, NBL1 and Super Rugby. We do it well, and we welcome all codes. These games bring fans into our cities and revenue into our local businesses. Hosting the WBBL is already a great win for Ballarat.

I look forward to taking my girls to these matches to be inspired by these great women cricketers. Go Renegades!
