THE 18th annual Shaheedi Memorial Tournament was attended by about 3000 people.

Organising committee secretary Anup Nadra said people from all across Australia were in Griffith for the event.

He said the kabaddi a traditional Indian wrestling sport was what drew the biggest crowds.

"It's been pretty good," he said.

"We've had people from all over Australia."

Mr Nadra said the food on offer, prepared by hundreds of local men and women, had also been extremely popular.

In a coup for the event, a women's team from New Zealand competed in the kabaddi.

The event was held at Ted Scobie Oval.
