Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein slows down Derwent Entertainment Centre progress

Now the Premier has put a halt to the refurbishment of the team’s hometown court.  The proposal to restructure the Derwent Entertainment Centre is only temporary. 

But the further delay may put a strain on the partnership with the NBL owners of the unnamed club.

NBL chief executive Larry Kestelman first announced Tasmania’s entry into the competition for the 2021-22 season back in February.  The deal was on the proviso that the state government act as the new club’s major sponsor, which also included changing the face of the Derwent Entertainment Centre.
