|Oakhill School's DotA 2 esports team - Mr Project|
Although the championships back then only concentrated on board games and wargames, the championships has over the years also been broadened to include eSports.
It has over the years, been a great source of unearthing the talent that has driven many of the senior national teams.
Many top gamers at school level have been enlisted into National Team duty – and have done very well!
One only has to remember players like Vincent Lane (St John's College), Andre Tonkin (Krugersdorp High), David Webster (Sandringham High), Pierre Lotter (Paul Roos Gimnasium), Angelo stathoussis (Somerset College), Dominic Bauer (Eden College), Conradie van Heerden (DF Malan), Jason Batzofin (St John's College), Elishia Retief (Hoerskool Linden), Gabriella Isaacs (SAHETI),Dillon Justus (DF Malan), Simon Zandstra (Rondebosch High), and Jessie Joubert (Rondebosch High).
All of the above have performed at the highest levels both here and abroad, and all of whom have done South Africa proud – very proud indeed!
The championship also counts as the MSSA's National Team Trials for MSSA Junior Protea Teams.
Registrations will close on the 18 July 2017.
All gamers are reminded that the South African National Championships is an open championship. In other words any registered player is entitled to enter the championship – no matter where they live, or their category of membership. If you have any queries, please contact the MSSA.
