With the ABL beginning this year we also have a new opportunity for Canberrans to compete in sport at the national level.
This will provide even more choice in sport for Canberrans and further raise the profile of Canberra as a sporting and tourism destination.
The ACT Government has supported the Cavalry with improvements at Narrabundah Ballpark including lighting upgrades, an electronic scoreboard and improved player facilities.
The Government will also provide about $30,000 per year in sponsorship and a one-off $45,000 to help establish the team.
Until the dozing old bastards at Cricket Australia extract their digits and give us a 20-20 team in a real national league this could be a fun way to get a sports fix through summer.
