Representatives of the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) joined representatives from Destination Tweed and the Tweed District Cricket Association yesterday for the launch of the ACA Masters Tour, an exciting cricket event that will bring former Australian cricketers to the region over 6–8 March.

The ACA Masters team will also conduct kids’ in2CRICKET clinics, present a youth scholarship and mentoring program, and take part in a sportsmen’s night, among a range of community activities during the event.

Destination Tweed CEO Bill Tatchell said his organisation was thrilled to be hosting the event, which is expected to bring a lot of visitors to the region.

‘Destination Tweed sees the Tweed region as an ideal venue for all genres of sporting events,’ said Mr Tatchell.

‘To be involved in bringing the ACA Masters to our own backyard is a win for the local community, aspiring junior cricketers and local schools, as well as the local economy.

‘It is a perfect opportunity to showcase our destination to a wider audience as we expect huge numbers from throughout southeast Queensland and New South Wales to come along and see some of these Aussie “legends” in action,’ he said. ‘And I am sure there will be hundreds of people cheering on our local side as well.’

The ACA Masters program is funded primarily by the current Australian and state cricketers as part of their support for game development and promotion of cricket in regional areas.
