Major Basketball and Cricket Events For The Valley

Stars of Australia’s National Basketball League (NBL) and Melbourne Stars Big Bash League Club will soon play and coach in the Latrobe Valley under new partnership agreement.

The excitement kicks off next month when all eight NBL teams play two games each at the Traralgon Sports Stadium. The three-day pre-season tournament runs from September 7 to 9.

The region will then be treated to world class cricket when the Melbourne Stars take on the Hobart Hurricanes in a men’s Big Bash pre-season match under lights in Traralgon on Friday 15 December.

Under the partnership, the Stars will bring some of the best T20 cricketers in Australia to the Latrobe Valley, including Glenn Maxwell and Meg Lanning, to help build upon an already strong cricket foundation in the region.
