Aurora Sports Stadium, New Town

The Halfwit (Half-Yearly Winter Indoor Tournament) is an annual, one-day indoor ultimate tournament – a very fun and frenzied day of ultimate in the chilly mid-winter, culminating in a finals round and a free BBQ.

Halfwit IV will use the “hat” format, in which random teams are drawn out of a hat. This makes for a great way to meet and play with new people – you might find some new future team-mates!

We welcome players of all skill levels, including complete beginners. See below for how to sign up.

Tournament Fees

Halfwit fees are as follows. Standard fees must be paid before Wednesday 27th June; the late fee applies to payments after that date.

Standard fee $30
Late fee (after 27th June) $40
On the day fee $50

What do I need to bring?

Firstly, please note that lunch is not provided. You will either need to bring a packed lunch, drive to the nearby Moonah shopping area to buy food, or visit the fast food shop over the road. (There will be a free BBQ after the finals, though, so you won't need to worry about dinner!)

We also ask that you bring a white and a black top. You will probably need to change between these during the day.

So, here's a list of things to bring:

  • Lunch
  • A white and a black top
  • Sports clothes and sneakers
  • Warm clothes for lunchtime, breaks and during the finals
  • Stylish clothes for the finals - we recommend fun hats, silly socks and other accessories
  • Water bottle
  • Snacks
  • Any medical supplies you might need
