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 VI 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 registration details.

Tournament Fees

Halfwit fees are as follows. Standard fees must be paid before Monday 7th July; the late fee applies to payments after that date.

Standard fee $30
Late fee (after 6th July) $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
