The Illawarra Sports Stadium (ISS) is a not for profit organisation with all income spent on services to the community.
It features a 4-court international standard stadium with associated facilities which has been fully operational since 1992. This venue is a multi-purpose indoor sport and recreation complex managed and operated on a voluntary basis by members of the Illawarra community.
In that time, the Illawarra Sports Stadium has provided a high standard complex for sporting and recreational activities for many organisations, as well as providing a home for netball and basketball and other related sporting activities.
The stadium is equipped with a modern canteen that can provide a large range of hot and cold food and drinks to players and supporters. It has been recently upgraded thanks to support from the State Government through the Community Building Partnership.
By the mid 90’s Netball was conducting programmes and competitions seven days a week while the Stadium provided basketball with a venue for some 90 teams on a weekly basis.
The Stadium is the venue for NSW Soccer to conduct major Indoor Soccer events (Futsal) over 5 days
The complex has been used by a very wide range organisations and companies to prompt their services and product. Woolworth’s has used the full 3000 square metres of the complex to launch new products for their state and regional managers.
Lifeline now conducts their biannual Big Book Fair at the Stadium where some 80,000 books and printed material is on display. In March 2016 some 5000 attended their most recent Fair. The Stadium is the venue for regular bimonthly Computer Fairs.
