Promoting participation in gaming!

NOVEMBER 21, 2016

MSSA’s annual S A National Championships is to take place on 3 & 4 December 2016.

Thus looking back over the past three years, it is pleasing to see a greater number of both women and school taking part.

In fact, it is quite interesting to see just how many registered players who have done well in the SA Nationals are called up for duty in the national Protea Teams whether ut be for board games, esports, and/or wargames.

The 2016 year also sees the introduction of PES ’16, and Mortal Kombat X.

However, it should be noted that the Call of Duty and OSU titles has been dropped as not enough interest (as evidenced through entries at all provincial and regional championships in 2015) was shown.

Over the past three years there has been a year-on-year increase in participation by women. This bodes well not only in the  short-term, but also in the long-term.

It is largely true that MSSA leads the way on an international level in promoting gaming among women, and as a result is reaping the fruit of such.
