Getting over those post Easters blues? Ready to jump back into debating and get ready for Australs season?

Well, SWORDS has got you covered because we are v excited to host our first Mini-Gong of the year! ✨

It's only one day tournament which means you don't have to worry too much about where to spend the night (unless you want to explore Wollongong the next day/have brunch near the beach – 10/10 would recommend).

And for those of you who enjoy SWORDS' company, you also have the option of joining us for dinner (this is completely optional but honestly why wouldn't you want to spend time with your wollongong favs ✨)

CA: Our very own Ben Hewitt (so if you've had the unfortunate pleasure of debating with him about debate topics, you can now see what he's capable of doing when he's been given full reign over a tournament & judge him for yourself 😂)
