10 benefits of the DSH esports tournament (P1)
We know that esports opens up a world of opportunities for students. Not only do we have evidence of this in our landmark esports report, but we continually see the positive mark that engaging schools in esports has on education: from increasing school attendance and heightening interest in team sports, to maintaining friendships and improving communication skills.
It's been over two weeks since the blast that was the DSH esports grand final, and we couldn't have hoped for a better end to this epic journey! Over the course of the last 7 months, students, teachers, and industry professionals have contributed to make this tournament the biggest and best it's ever been.
We can't help feeling a little deflated now that all the action is over, so let's delve into some of the moments that made the tournament so memorable...
Following the annoucement at Ukie’s AGM, we return with our third national esports tournament and we are delighted to announce that the competition once again features the popular game Overwatch® by Blizzard Entertainment. Last year’s tournament succeeded to reach over 2,000 students who participated as either players or as part of the school or college’s event management, social media, press and community team.
