Carslaw 275

Organised by:
University of Sydney Union Debating

Going to women's? Don't like topics set in Gotham? Dislike registration that fills up in under 3 minutes? Have an odd fondness for the understated glamour of the Carslaw Building? Come to USU IV!

It’ll be held on the weekend of the 17th-18th of September and is open to anyone! Regardless of your institution or level of experience, you are 100% welcome. It's also a great opportunity for women’s teams and/or judges from any and all institutions to get some practice!

This tournament will be in BP format. If you are not confident in this format, we will have a debating briefing before the first round to fill you in.

If we're lacking judges we'll impose n-1 on other institutions. #soznotsoz

You can sign up as a team or register as an individual and we can put you on a team with someone.


The tournament will be CA'd by Bostan Nurlanov, Justin Chan and Steph White. Bios (and odd but somehow cute photoshopped images) are below in the announcment post.

PAYMENT (including penalties for late payment)

The tournament will cost $40 for debaters and $30 for adjudicators.

If this is an issue please send us a message and we’ll see what we can do - we are able to offer some registration waivers.

Pay before round 1: $40 (debaters) / $30 (judges)
Pay after round 1: $45 / $35
Pay on day 2: $50 / $40
If you haven't paid before the draw runs for round 5, your team will be cut from the tab.


Registration will close at midnight on Wednesday the 14th of September. Both members of a team need to complete their rego individually.
