IT WILL be a basketball match to make or break relationships when 10 mothers and 10 daughters go head-to-head this Saturday aiming to raise money for new seating at their local basketball stadium.
Donna Bashforth and her daughter Eloise Bashforth, 16, of McKees Hill are two of the players taking part.
"The idea was just to have some fun and raise funds to get more seating for the Lismore Basketball stadium," Mrs Bashforth said.
Games at the stadium have drawn capacity crowds and officials are keen to cater for larger crowds.
Mrs Bashforth also said the mother-daughter clash would give them all a good chance to bond while enjoying a bit of friendly competition - maybe even letting off some steam.
Players from the under 18 women's team, and from the under 16 and under 14 girls teams have united for the 'Daughters' team, with their mothers then joining the 'Mothers' team.
With some well-credentialed players in the daughter's team, it's looking to be a challenge for the mothers.
"It's going to be a tough game," Mrs Bashforth said.
"But we've got quite a few tricks up our sleeve."
Eloise said it was going to be good whichever way the points fell.
"It's just a social game, for a bit of fun," she said.
She was, however, confident the younger team would take the title given the under 18 women's team had just won the Northern Junior League final against Tamworth last weekend.
The game has been sponsored by a group of local businesses, including The Northern Star, allowing the teams to purchase uniforms for the game.
The game kicks off at 4pm on Saturday at the Lismore Basketball Stadium, Keen St, and will be followed by the last home game of the season for the Lismore Men's State League team as Lismore Storm take on Newcastle Hunters at 6pm.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children, $25 for a family pass. Tickets allows entry to both games.
