WNBL in Tas
Read a report today posted on LinkdIn that a majority Labor Government will invest $1m over 3 years to assist in the establishment of a Tasmanian WNBL team.
Seems like Tassie are making a real push to have a presence Nationally to the game, which is great.
From the article:
Existing funding arrangements and commitments to be honoured
Funding for a Tasmanian WNBL Side
Labor is working for Tasmanians to deliver healthy, active and better-connected communities
A majority Labor Government will provide $1 million in funding over three years to help fund a Tasmanian WNBL side.
Shadow Minister for Sport David O'Byrne said Labor’s Basketball package will honour existing funding commitments while creating a pathway for Tasmanian women to play professional basketball.
"Tasmanian women deserve the same opportunity for a pathway to elite basketball as men," Mr O’Byrne said.
“This is why a majority Labor Government will give $1 million in funding for a Tasmanian WNBL side over three years.
“We will also honour existing funding arrangements and commitments so Tasmania can rest easy knowing that under a majority Labor Government, basketball will receive the same funding that is currently being delivered.
“A majority Labor Government believes both Tasmanian men and women deserve a spot on the national stage.
“Labor is working for Tasmanians to deliver healthy, active and better-connected communities.”
