Through playing these very much more informal competitions, gamers are able to hone their skills for the year ahead.
And what a year it is going to be.
The year takes off to a quick start with the Old Edwardian Summer Championships, the Online Schools Championships and the Annual Gauteng Championships.
As usual MSSA shall send a teams to world championships as organised by the international federations.
However, it must be borne in mind that teams shall only be selected should the criteria for selecting a team be met.
Also, it should too be borne in mind that only players who participate in National Team Trials shall be eligible for selection.
So, all the best for 2017, get out there and good luck!
