Southern Force guard Dre Whaanga passes the ball as she is guarded by Central Otago guard Hayley Gray during the final of the Southern Force Invitational women’s basketball tournament at the Edgar Centre on Sunday.

The tournament was played over two days and also included Southland and an Invitational side. It was begun this year to provide a stepping stone between club basketball and the National Basketball League.

There were hopes it would become an annual event and several other teams from as far away as Nelson had shown interest.

Several Otago Gold Rush players were involved.

Central Otago beat the Force in the final.
