Players who win all their rounds in the titles that they have entered automatically earn themselves Junior National Federation Colours.
Another important feature of this championship, is that it is open to any learner, whether or not the school is affiliated or not.
However, for team events, it is required that all members of the team are from the same school.
MSSA, being unable to hold its 10th South African Schools' National Championships will thus be holding an equitable Online National Championships on 13 June 2020.
MSSA's 10th South African Schools' National Championships has thus not been replaced by this event, the Championship has merely been delayed until the situation permits. Thus MSSA will relook at a date for the 10th South African Schools' National Championships.
Players too, will be able to play from their own homes.
