Results: 23rd North West Championships.

North West Provincial Championships - a successful affair.
The North West Provincial Championships is an important championships leading up to MSSA's National Team Trials with the championships being the third last championship, for esports, and the second last championship for board games and wargames, in which players may qualify for such Trials.

As a result, the 2018 edition of MSSA's North West experienced huge growth making it the largest North West Championships held to date.

MSSA's 23rd  North West Provincial Championships were more than ably hosted by Curro Klerksdorp. The learners at the school showed sportsmanship of the highest order, and were kind and courteous to all the officials and players alike. 

It was pleasing to see that the championship also attracted players from the Free State, and Gauteng, although the most inspiring aspect of the championships was the number of school teams that participated.

The number of school teams that participated, re-inforces MSSA's belief that in promoting school teams the various development gals are more effectively reached.

Out of a total of 15 premier titles, 7 of such were won by learners.

The senior teams had to fight long and hard against the much improved school teams that challenged the senior teams at every turn as they fought for a place in the 2018 National Team Trials that will ultimately deliver South Africa's Protea teams.

Special mention must be made of Chanel de Wet (JCS Academy) who is ranked 6th in the world for checkers and who dominated her division.

The improved depth in the standard of play bodes well for the future of all of South African gaming.
