So what is a club?

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) accepts clubs into membership that are:

  • Non Profit Companies (NPC),
  • Associations, 
  • Universities, and 
  • Schools.
All member clubs have the following benefits:

  • Being part of a community where your club has a real say in how things are done
  • Being able to apply for National Lottery Funding – MSSA member clubs can apply for up to R800,000.00 in funding
  • Being able to get assistance from your local government
  • Experience increased media exposure of your events and your gamers
  • Become part of the international community through the MSSA Registered players are able to become internationally recognised umpires, etc.
  • Enable your gamers to take part in MSSA events, which may qualify them for Regional, Provincial, and National colours, overseas trips, and even sports bursaries at university, and 
  • Have all of its events accredited as official events.
However, there seems to be much confusion as to how a member club runs itself.

A member club is:
  • It's own legal persona, 
  • It may run its own events for its own members as well as for the public at large,
  • It may have as many teams as it desires, and in the case of Universities, may have teams in each residence, and
  • It is the member of MSSA and the club alone, through its elected office-bearers, deals with MSSA.
