Kangaroo Valley Tennis Courts


  • 1920, Public Court located on a private land opposite the Community Centre/Ambulance Station was built during the Australian tennis boom time
  • 1950, the court had flood lighting installed as electricity was available from 1947
  • 1979, Kangaroo Valley Tennis Club reformed at the KV Hall. During this time, the court was repaired and new flood lights were installed. This was all accomplished by voluntary labour and was funded by the sale of the court to Shoalhaven City Council. Thus it became a Council court.
  • 1981, the first club tournament occurred. In the following years, weekly club tennis began, Valley teams entered Saturday afternoon district competitions, and Valley night competitions commenced
  • 1980, the court was resurfaced with synthetic grass which was the first court of this kind. At this time, Club members built the public amenities block in Broughton Street and council paid cash in lieu which funded the court resurfacing
  • 1987, club member Paul Turnuck’s entry won Shoalhaven Council’s Earth Week competition which proposed the creation, by the community, of Riverside Park including two new tennis courts. The project was subsequently endorsed as the major Australia Bi-centennial project for Kangaroo Valley. Then Council purchased the required land.
  • 1990, the tennis complex containing two tennis courts was opened.
  • 1996/7, two new synthetic grass courts were constructed, funded by contribution of the club and Council. Some years later, the original court in Broughton Street was demolished.
  • 1997/8, Paul Turnock built the ‘Clubhouse’.
