Twenty-seven netball teams from around Soweto came to support a tournament organised by the Soweto Netball Association at Elkah Stadium on Saturday.

The Under-19 section was won by the People's Cultural Organisation (POC), who defeated Chiawelo Somoho 29-23 in the final.

X1 Experience won the Under-15 division, overpowering POC 24-22.

Coordinator Minky Magooe said the association appreciated the contribution of the clubs in this successful maiden tournament.

"The day's programme was very tough on the players, most of whom are used to playing just one match a day," she said.

"We gave them a chance to challenge themselves physically, with some teams playing up to six matches a day." - Linda Moreotsene
