Catch all the big bash action at Varsity

Why you gotta love the big bash

Nothing, not even COVID-19 is keeping the cricket from hitting our shores this summer. And we’re pretty pumped it’s back.

With the Big Bash League (BBL10) already in full swing, you can catch every ball live and loud on our big screens at Varsity.

Still wondering what all the fuss is about? Here’s 7 reasons why you should switch on.
