New Zealand's Top
If you’ve never debated before, or want a recap as to what it’s all about, there'll be a development seminar at 5 pm which will build on the things you can use during club nights. If you're keen to develop your skills as a judge you'll be able to trainee, and if you’re keen to get debating you’ll be able to put your name down and we will sort you into a team (or you and your friends can enter as a team). The night officially starts at 6 pm for debates and pizza, and there will be a fun game or event afterwards as a reward for all your amazing work!
Save the date for the biggest and best tournament in New Zealand! Thropy is fast approaching and we can't wait to take a road trip to the exciting Palmerston North for some extraordinary debates!
Thropy is being held from the 7th to the 8th of May. This means that it is the perfect excuse to have an epic weekend before the stress of the end of the semester arrives.
We'll travel down on the afternoon of Friday the 6th of May, debate on Saturday and Sunday (and hopefully beat other teams from Victoria University and Waikato University ), and then return on Sunday afternoon having had all sorts of other adventures in between. We'll organise teams, accommodation, social events (including a legendary BYO on the Saturday night) and transport (if you need it) and we'll also subsidise lots of your costs.
We run events throughout the year, ranging from regular club nights to social events and public debates.
