Author: Luke Bethwaite, Tournament Coordinator

Happy Monday gamers! 

Last week saw the conclusion of the second leg of the Digital Schoolhouse Smash Bros. Ultimate Team Battle 2022. The Semi-finals are over! 

Watch the grand final live at Gfinity esports arena

It’s been great to put faces to the names of our players and shoutcasters – so a HUGE shoutout to everyone who has participated so far 🔥 

I’m happy to announce that the winner of our South Semi-final was none other than Langley Grammar School who smashed it out of the ballpark last Wednesday, winning all of their games and going toe-to-toe with New College Swindon – our runner up team – who gave them a good run for their money in the final set! Both teams shall be going through to our Grand-finals! 🏅 

And on Friday we concluded our Semi-final segment of the tournament with a fantastic turnout to HOST Social, Salford. The level of play was really well-rounded here... but only one team could come out on top... Norton College took the ‘W’, with Calday Grange Grammar School making a huge come back from the loser's bracket as a close second - both teams going through to the Grand-final. 🏅 

Also, a massive shout out to all of our student shoutcasters who took part in commentating on the gameplay and vying for the Best Shoutcaster award at each of our events.  

We saw some amazing gameplay from our participating schools and colleges in the lead-up during the Regional Qualifiers. Now with our in-person Semi-finals out of the way, it’s on to the Grand-final at the Gfinity esports arena in Fulham! 

We have a fantastic line-up of guest speakers who will be participating in a panel hosted by Alysia Judge, one of the UK’s premier speakers and broadcasters on gaming and an award-winning journalist, presenter and producer.  

Everyone here at Digital Schoolhouse is excited to see what insights our guest speakers have for us and where the Tournament will end! 

Who will be crowned the Digital Schoolhouse Smash Bros. Ultimate Team Battle 2022 Champion?! 🏆
