2020 IWWF World Water Ski Show Tournament To Be Held in Australia
16th September 2018
The Mulwala Water Ski Club in Yarrawonga, Australia, will host the next IWWF World Water Ski Show Tournament in March 2020.
The Mulwala Water Ski Club was officially opened on 11th December 1982, and began operating as a modest club in 1983 boasting 21 poker machines, a lounge area, dining room, snack bar and 400 members.
Built on land adjacent to the old Mulwala Sawmill and Cypress Gardens Caravan Park the Ski Club was first known as Paradise Water Ski Club with elected President and life member Max Kirwan at the helm. At the time of its construction Mr Kirwan said the Paradise Water Ski Club could eventually be the headquarters for water skiing in Australia.
Mr Kirwan wasn’t far off the mark as the Mulwala Water Ski Club now boasts one of the best water skiing facilities in the world.
The addition of the Water Ski Park facility in 1993 rocketed the Mulwala Water Ski into world class status. The club soon after hosted the IWSF World Disabled Championships, IWSF Asian-Australasian Waterski, Barefoot and Wakeboard Championship, IWWF World Barefoot Water Ski Championships and various national events.
