Female participation continued to grow with female participation growing in a number of titles. The SA Nationals is thus now the championship that has more female participation than any other championship held in South Africa, and ranks among the top championships in the world for such.
Players thus battled it out to not only to earn the titles of South African Champion and SA Ladder Champions, but also to earn National Federation Colours and the right to fight for a place in the 2018 National Team Trials that will ultimately deliver a team to IeSF's 2017 10th World Championships - Kaohsiung City.
Another notable performance was by Kaira Gabriella Pinard who won bothe the HearthStone and StarCraft II titles, and in the process earned herself National Federation Colours.
