Whether you've memorised the Harry Potter books from end to end, or have no idea who this Potter kid is but just want to try out a new and cool sport, this is the club for you.
Quidditch is a fast paced, tactical, all-inclusive, mixed-gender, full contact sport, that's played all around Australia and around the world. We are Sydney University's own quidditch club, we currently field three teams, the Unspeakables, the Unbreakables, and the Unforgivables, in the NSW State League, and in the Australian National Championship, among other tournaments. We are the largest quidditch club in Australia, with our top team placing third in the state league and fifth at nationals in 2017. You also have the option of playing casually/non competitively.
We train 3 times a week in Victoria Park on Thursdays and Friday from 2-5pm, as well as on weekends (see our facebook page for more details or send us a message if interested in coming during the holidays). Anyone is free to come along and try at any time, and we welcome all abilities, all genders, and all experience levels.
In addition to playing the sport, we also run a variety of social events throughout the year, including HP trivia, movie nights, Hogsmeade visits (pub crawls), Horcrux (scavenger) hunts, and more!
To answer your first few questions - no we don't really fly, and the snitch is a person.
