The Hague Debate Society mainly debates in the British Parliamentary Format.

Our Debate Evenings

We meet weekly on Tuesday in the Wijnhaven Building (Turfmarkt 99, The Hague) at 6-9PM. A typical evening involves a short workshop, a fun debate and post-debate drinks nearby! No prior debate experience required.

In the lead-up to key tournaments, we also organise debate evenings on Friday at 5-8PM.


The Hague Debate Society sends teams to debate tournaments within and beyond the Netherlands. Come down to our evenings to find out more about joining one of our contingents!
