Cavalry Announce Lake Crackenback Resort as Sponsor
10/18/2015 7:03 PM ET

The Canberra Elite Cavalry have announced that the Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa will come onboard as sponsors for the upcoming season of the Australian Baseball League.

Anthony Cleary, General Manager of Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa said the resort is well-known for its array of sporting facilities and events and is a strong supporter of local sport.

"We are proud to support the Canberra Cavalry as they embark on the new national baseball season and look forward to cheering the team on to a winning season," Cleary said.

Cleary believes the fan base for baseball in Australia is growing each year and that there is mass grassroots fan support for the team in Canberra and that the home games had significant potential to increase tourism to the region.

"The home of the Canberra Calvary, Narrabundah Ballpark, or 'The Fort' as it is known is one of the most difficult venues for opposing teams in the league, Cleary said."

"We are hoping that interstate fans decide to stay on for a couple of days after the baseball game and discover the beauty in and around Canberra as well as take the easy drive out to the Snowy Mountains and spend some time with us at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa."

Mr Cleary said he was delighted to see so many local businesses supporting the Canberra Cavalry and looks forward to working alongside these organisations to 'knock this baseball season right out of the ballpark'.
