TOURNAMENTS

Duke Debaters choose when and where they want to go to tournaments. Most students choose go to 2-3 tournaments per semester, but there are no restrictions as to how many tournaments members must or can attend. Travel expenses to tournament locations are fully funded by the team’s endowment.
