There is no surprise that the top three positions are held by Old Edwardians.
However, the Teutonic Knights Mind Sports Club has been experiencing a huge growth spurt, and with the growth rate in numbers, there has been a commensurate improvement in standard of play.
Both Jacques Gertzen and Anja Els surprised all at the recent National Team Trials held on 6 & 7 May 2017 with their much improved standard.
With Mpumulanga being the last South African Championships prior to the World Championships, it will be interesting to see the standard in play by MSSA's players.
