Results: Gauteng Provincial Championships

John Kim (Hoërskool Middelburg) is fast establishing himself as the athlete to beat in the Clash Royale esports title.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) held its 38th Gauteng Championships on 13 and 14 May 2022.

In order to still take COVID-19 regulations into account, the esports events were held online while the boardgaming and wargaming events were held at the Old Edwardian Society in Lower Houghton.

The event was admirably umpired by Johan van Breda and Anneke Luies who are experts at doing such.

It was truly exciting to see eleven (11) athletes qualify for Provincial Colours and to see clubs participating in the event from Gauteng, North West, and Mpumalanga.

With the Gauteng Championships being the first event to hold Morabaraba in 2022, it was wonderful to see the young University of Witwatersrand student, Saudah Bhaimia, who had earned National Colours, at the 2021 South African National Championships, continue in her winning ways to take the Morabaraba event.

Hoërskool Klerksdorp continued with its winning ways, and grabbed hold of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang  and StreetFighter V esports titles.

All the teams that finished in the top three places of the Premiet Championships are now in the running to qualify for MSSA's National Team Trials (NTT).

Thus the competion for a  place  in MSSA's official Protea Esports Team to attend IESF's 14th World Esports Championships in Bali later this year is hotting up.

The winners of MSSA's 38th Gauteng Championships are:
