Quidditch

About Us

Hello and welcome to Quidditch! We are a friendly, inclusive, and tight-knit club for all those of you that want to learn a new and dynamic sport. This fictional sport originating from the Harry Potter universe has, over the years, acquired increasing popularity amongst university clubs and societies all over the world, to the point where in 2012, the first IQA World Cup (international quidditch association) was held. Since then, more and more universities have been creating Quidditch teams to compete in tournaments all over the country, with now more than 300 teams all across the world! Quidditch itself is a mixed-gender, full-contact sport for 2 teams of 7 players each; it incorporates elements of dodgeball, basketball, rugby, and more, with the added element of everyone running with a broomstick. In itself though, Quidditch doesn’t have a lot to do with Harry Potter; whilst a lot of players are serious Potterheads, many are just open-minded to trying out a fun and inclusive sport, which is what we’re ultimately seeking!

So what are you waiting for? You don't have to be a Harry Potter fan to join us, and we welcome any and all abilities! Whether you attend practice to be the next Victor Krum or to meet a group of like-minded individuals, we hope to create something new, unique, and hilarious: when everyone is doing something different on the field whilst running in the mud with a broom between their legs, there is bound to be a show.  

Please note that we train every Sunday from 10 am-12 pm in founders field!
