Hobart Hurricanes' WBBL side will be breaking new ground this season with Invermay Park set to host its first T20 domestic match.
Providing a training facility for the team in previous years, Mowbray Cricket Club's home ground will get the call up to the first eleven as UTAS Stadium is out of action for refurbishment.
Newly-appointed Hurricanes general manager, Scott Barnes, said it is an honour for Tasmania's team to be represented in Launceston.
"It's great to be back here in Launceston and we are really excited for the opportunity to be playing here again," Barnes said.
"It's really exciting [playing at Invermay Park]. It's a great wicket from what I understand and it's a great opportunity to involve the community and have a real engaging atmosphere for the playing group."
Hobart Hurricanes captain, Sasha Moloney, grew up in the North and while pleased to be back playing in front of her home crowd, has an interesting memory when it comes to playing on Invermay Park's turf.
"It's always good to get back up here and play in front of a home crowd for me," Moloney said.
"It was really good to see the expansion to Burnie last year and have good support up there.
"I've actually played one game here [at Invermay Park]. I think it was about 10 years ago and a men's match, so it's obviously a different standard playing in the WBBL but it's really exciting and it's a really great venue for families to get along and watch some cricket."
Moloney's team-mate and fellow Northern product, Brooke Hepburn, also expressed her delight in returning to the North of the state.
"It's really special to be back in Launceston to play another fixture of WBBL here. We get a lot of support from the locals and we have good crowds here so it's good to get that support once again," Hepburn said.
Captain of Tasmania's WNCL side, Hepburn enjoyed a two-wicket haul in the first match in Launceston last season and is enjoying the prospect of being a role model for the North.
"It's a really exciting time for female cricket and young boys and girls can see there's a pathway for girls to play professional sport that's now televised which is really exciting and stand-alone now which is also exciting."
