“On the corner of Bird and Adam Tas Streets stands an icon of the local community, just like Paul Roos Gymnasium, Mercedes-Benz Stellenbosch lives up to its motto “The Best or Nothing”. We are therefore excited to be taking on the title sponsorship for the Chess and Golf teams. We are invested in the community and understand the importance that academics and sport  play in creating our future leaders. We at Mercedes-Benz Stellenbosch wish our teams good luck for the 2023 year.”
