The various events held by Mind Sports South Africa.

Some of the winners at MSSA's 2019 S A National Championships.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) runs a plethora of events during each and every year.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) was constituted in 1985 and was first accepted by the National Olympic Committee (NOC) as a member in 1991 when it was still the NOSC.

Volunteers stand at the core of MSSA, and without whom, nothing would get done or be achieved. MSSA is indeed blessed to have sterling volunteers who act as administrators, umpires, and technical officials. Due to the involvement of such volunteers MSSA is able to host so many activities dwarf  those of all other constituted bodies in South Africa.


In 2019, MSSA held no fewer than 30 events since  the last IESF World Championships in Kaohsuing in 2018.

The MSSA runs the following:
