The unstoppable Thathane and her partner, Mpho Maboe, also walked away with a trophy each after winning the women's doubles.

Other winners:

Men: Senior singles - Daniel Myeni; doubles - Fani Nkosi and Sidwell Thabethe.

Juniors' singles: Boys - Senzo Mabaso; Girls - Selelisiwe Nkosi.

Boys: Doubles - Senzo Mabaso and Sibusiso Mnyeni. Girls - Refilwe Maboe and Senelisiwe Nkosi.
