|Elishia Retief after winning the IWF's 2016 World Championships - Mbabane|
Of special interest, South Africa's three current world champions will all be looking for a place in the team, being Elishia Retief, Jason Batzofin, and Colin Webster.
However, it should be noted that even more players may qualify for the Team Trials through the Free State, Gauteng, and Mpumulanga School Championships which are to be held on 29 & 30 April 2017 - just one week prior to the National Team Trials for Morabaraba and Ancients wargaming.
South Africa has a very proud reputation in Ancients figure gaming, and it is expected that any of the following people will be more than able to maintain South Africa's reputation in the game.
