Welcome to the home page for the 2023 DBU Invitational tournament hosted by Dallas Baptist University on Feb 10-12, 2023 for College students.

Status: Tournament Completed



The Dallas Baptist University Debate Team eagerly invites you to attend the first-ever DBU Invitational IPDA Tournament. The tournament will take place February 10-12, 2023. We are excited to offer all four IPDA divisions of individual debate as well as TIPDA. There will be six preliminary individual rounds and four team debate rounds. Outrounds will be determined based on the number of entries. 


The competition will take place on top of the University Hill located on our beautiful campus. We also provide a number of food/drink options across campus. These will be open for the duration of the competition on Friday and Saturday.


The tournament fees for this tournament will be $25 per individual debate competitor and $50 per team. The tournament will require you to bring along one judge for every four individual competitors and two teams. For each uncovered competitor, there will be an additional $20 charge. Please bring along judges to help with our judging pool!


Tournament registration closes on February 7th, at 5pm. After this, there will be a $10 fee for altering registrations. No changes will be accepted after noon (CST) on February 9th. The earlier, the better! 

We hope to have a great weekend debating! Please contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns. See you there!
