Who are we?

We are a diverse group of people who enjoy the art of logical argumentation and structured discussion. We are open to anyone who wants to join and have no political or university affiliations.
We are the most successful debating club in Austria and one of the most internationally successful debate clubs in the German-speaking region.

As such, we aim to provide you with training to match – that’s why our trainers include World Championship Semi-Finalists and European Vice Champions! Our training sessions happen twice a week during lecture periods in both English and German, so language is no barrier when it comes to starting debating with us!

 

We also travel to international tournaments, including South Africa, Thailand, Mexico and almost all European countries and capitals.  These are great opportunities to connect and build friendships with people from all corners of the globe. But if you want to stay a little more regional, we also have you covered – we’re also active in the German speaking circuit, where tournaments are just a quick train ride away.
In addition to that, we regularly host tournaments ourselves and welcome some of the most successful international debaters to Vienna.

Finally, we are a great place to make new friends! Grabbing a pizza together after training has become basically a cornerstone of the club, but we also often meet up outside of debating – be it ruining our vocal chords at a karaoke bar, having a chill BBQ or having found a more or less reasonable excuse for a party. With the era of online debating, we also hang out on our Discord server after online tournaments (or whenever we feel like it).
