The tournament

Founded by Chuck Beddingfield in 2011, the tournament has grown from just 16 teams in its inaugural year to as many as 98 in 2017.

Since its start, more than 5,000 high school girl basketball players have participated with teams from the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and Canada.

Our goal is: “To deliver a girls only holiday HS basketball tournament in Charleston, SC that will create a memorable, high value experience for teams and fans alike, while promoting & supporting the sport itself.”

Charleston, SC

“Stand on the site of the first shot in the Civil War. Come face to face with a giant sea turtle. Take a tour of an antebellum mansion. Climb aboard a WWII aircraft carrier. There are so many blossoming gardens, so many photo opportunities and so many reasons to come back to see us again.​”

​”Many come to Charleston with one thing on their mind: food. The best grits you’ll ever have, prepared in ways you never imagined. Festive dockside oyster roasts. High-end restaurants. Outdoor cafés. Fresh from the dock seafood. Every meal is an event in itself. Prepared with perfection. Served with a warm smile. Enjoy..”

​Carolina Invitational is proud to be sponsored by the Charleston Visitors Bureau. Please visit their website for all the highlights of the Holy City of Charleston, South Carolina.
