End of Year News

It is almost the end of 2015 and what a year it has been! MAD congratulates all members for their hard work and devotion towards debating. After seeing success by way of reaching finals in highly competitive tournaments, in both debating and adjudicating prowess, we are proud of those who really uphold the principles of what it means to be a MADdie. Just a few announcements keep you in the loop:



The World Universities Debating Championship is returning for another year, promising high quality debates from the top representatives around the world! It will be held over New Year’s from the 27th of December to the 4th of January 2016. Flying in to the other side of the world to Macedonia University in Thessaloniki, Greece, here are MAD’s ambassadors:

Also, be on the lookout for the exclusive MAD Mini. This fun mash-up of traditional 3v3 style with POIs will surely start the debating year with a bang! We anticipate that it will be held in February, more information to be published on the MAD website and Facebook page. Stay tuned for our classic MAD Mini promo video!

MAD hopes that you all have a wonderful end of year holidays! We also can’t wait to see both new and familiar faces show up next year to kick off the debating season.
