The home of Tasmanian cricket lies on Hobarts eastern shore at the picturesque Blundstone Arena, Bellerive.

The headquarters of Tasmanian cricket relocated from the old TCA ground on Hobarts Queens Domain to the scenic Bellerive on the eastern shore of the Derwent River in 1987. The former community-based sports field has been progressively upgraded since with a major redevelopment completed during 2000-02. The re-development included the construction of a 6,000-seat Southern Grandstand, two Members buildings, indoor cricket nets and other improvements. The ground will now see further improvements, commencing in July 2013. A new western stand will boost the grounds capacity to 20,000 and will include state-of-the-art public, corporate and media facilities. Following the completion of the redevelopment, Blundstone Arena will be one of the best boutique sporting grounds in the world. The redevelopment will be completed in time for Australia hosting the World Cup in 2015. The venue currently consists of three principal stands - the Southern Stand (capacity 6,000) and the Members and Players Pavilions; there are two smaller stands and a traditional hill on the eastern boundary which collectively contribute to a capacity crowd of 16,000. The dimensions of the playing surface are 175m x 135m - slightly longer but somewhat narrower than the MCG.
