Basketball in Tasmania
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to be part of Tasmania’s new NBL team,” said Brookhouse, who will start in the role next month.
“Tasmania has a rich sporting heritage and this is an opportunity to showcase the state on the national and international stage.
“Having been closely involved in basketball in Tasmania, I know how passionate Tasmanians are about their sport and state and we want everyone to get behind the new team and make basketball the number one sport in Tasmania.”
