Kelvin Peninsula Community Association chairman Charlie Phillips, left, and resident Paul van der Kaag at the opening of the new $180,000 community tennis and netball courts at Jardine Park, Queenstown.

About 120 people turned out for a family barbecue this month to celebrate the new courts, which took about six weeks to build.

Sir Eion Edgar did the official honours, popping open a can of tennis balls instead of the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony.

Queenstown Lakes Mayor Vanessa van Uden, also a peninsula resident, was also on hand.

Mr Phillips paid tribute to the Central Lakes Trust, which kick-started the association's fundraising by injecting $60,000 towards the project.

The association gave $30,000, Queenstown Lakes District Council $30,000 and Community Trust of Southland $15,000, while businesses made up the remaining $5000.
