Manchester Thunder have won the Mike Greenwood Trophy for the third year in a row.
Thunder hosted the six-team tournament at the Thunderdome and ended it unbeaten, winning the final against Loughorough Lightning 13-12.
Fellow Superleague sides Team Northumbria, Celtic Dragons and Yorkshire Jets joined the Black and Yellows and Lightning in the round robin stage.
National side the Scottish Thistles travelled south to Manchester once again after skipping the tournament last year. The MGT trophy, which is in its third year, was named after former Thunder coach Mike Greenwood, who passed away in 2011.
The tournament is a key fixture in pre-season preparations for the Superleague teams.
Coaches took the opportunity to rotate their squads, with Thunder boss Tracey Neville playing all 12 players available to her. Thunder's most convincing performance was against the Thistles, with the home team winning 25-10.
Their toughest contest came against the Dragons, who restricted the Black and Yellows to just 11 goals in the first half. Team Northumbria also pushed the Gorton-based team into playing a high tempo.
Lightning, with former Thunder centre-courter Rachel Henry making her debut for her new team, were the tournament's surprise package.
The Midlands team's only losses were against Thunder and they recorded more wins during the competition that they have in the past three seasons put together.
Other tour highlights included tight tussles between Superleague rivals Celtic Dragons and Yorkshire Jets. Jets were trailing by seven at half time but had a super second half, however they ran out of time and lost 16-12. It meant Jets finished the tournament without a win.
In round six, an epic contest between Lightning and Dragons ended in Lightning storming to a 14-10 victory. Loughborough were on a roll and took momentum from the Dragons game to clinch an impressive 17-9 win over Northumbria. The Scots left their best performance to last but were unable to topple Lightning, and were pipped to the win 13-10. They did record wins against Jets and Dragons, however. Thunder had possession in the closing stages and held on t win by one.
But Loughborough will surely take heart from their impressive showing here, and head into the new Superleague season in January with confidence.
Player of the tournament, Thunder shooter Helen Housby said: “It feels good to win and to be named player of the tournament. “The final was a tough match and Loughborough improved so much after playing us in the first match and I think they will take their performances here into the season.“They have Rachel Henry and her experience is obviously working for them.
“We are good at those high pressure games and we are experienced in dealing with situations like that at the end.”
