Results: 2023 Gauteng Online Championships held on 11 March 2023.

Jessica Eleez Greeff (White Rabbit Gaming) earned the Sportsmanship Award. White Rabbit first affiliated in 2015 and, it seems, are back in the running for a place in the National Protea Team.

Mind Sports South Africa's (MSSA) 2023 Gauteng Online Championships held on 11 March 2023 showed sterling results.

The championship was a last chance for many esports athletes to qualify for MSSA's National Team Trials to be held on 25 March 2023 at which the team will be selected to officially represent South Africa at the African Qualifiers which lead up to IESF's 15th World Esports Championships to be held in Lasi, Romania in August 2023.

All Registered Players who have finished in the top three places, or the top 20% - whichever is greater, are entitled to enter trials.

However, it must be remembered that all players must have a valid passport at the date of entry.

It was indeed exciting to watch just how much all the female teams have improved. 

White Rabbit Gaming Club's (WRG) female team astounded all with their skill and sportsmanship. The team demolished all the female opposition and narrowly lost to the male team which ultimately won the premier event.

It is expected that the selection process for the esports title will be hotly contested.

Other female teams that excelled are:

  • Roedean College - League of Legends, and
  • Northcliff High School - Mobile Legends: Bang, Bang
The high standard of play saw a number of Registered Players being awarded Provincial Colours. Only Limpopo and Northern Cape did not have rRegistered Players who did not earn provincial colours.
