This weekend our debate club organized the beginners' tournament "Transrapid" in the KHG for the fifth time in a row. With six filled rooms (24 teams) it was the biggest beginners' tournament of our club so far. Debaters from Mainz, Halle, Zurich, Bamberg/Coburg, Jena, Vienna, Bayreuth, Erlangen/Nuremberg as well as numerous Munich teams took part.
After four preliminary rounds Fabiana and Maximilian from Coburg/Bamberg won the final. We are very happy that three Munich teams made it to the final and that Michael from Munich was the best speaker of the tournament . Congratulations to all of you!

Last weekend our beginners were able to prove their newly acquired knowledge and skills. The Viennese debate club hosted an English beginner's tournament: "Vienna Freshers 2019". Two of our teams (Niklas and Adrian / Altan and Arin) as well as our judge Yimin broke to the finals. But that is still not all: Altan and Arin also won the final, congrats!
