About Verbattle Karnataka
Verbattle is different from other debates. There are three teams, and sides are chosen by chance. Oftentimes there can be two teams for the statement and one against, or it is possible for one team to be for the statement and two against it. The teams are given little time to prepare for their one-minute round. Four to five rounds follow, with an opportunity for audience questions. Judges and mentors are also given the chance to ask questions. If the participants are under sixteen, mentors are allowed on the stage. Judgment of the teams is laid out under Judging Verbattle
Owing to many college events happening at the same time in Bangalore, we have decided to postpone the Verbattle Senior Competition to September. Those who are already selected in other zones will be automatically eligible for the state level, but we would also be conducting the Zonal Senior Clamber Rounds once again in September before the state level event.
