Blind Cricket Tasmania initiative WON the Cricket Australia Community Cricket Partnership of the Year Award for the 2021/22 season!

A BIG thanks to all players, supporters, volunteers, partners, sponsors, and donors who have contributed to achieving this outstanding result. As a national award, it’s a significant boost to BCT and blind and visually impaired sports gaining recognition and expanding in Tasmania.

See the Cricket Tas video announcement here.

Thanks also to the many organisations that have generously supported and/or guided BCT’s development and activities over the last 2 years.

And of course Cricket Tasmania and Cricket Australia for their significant support and passionate promotion of cricket as truly a sport for all!
