Meet the Team

There's a lot of admin that goes into making real life quidditch work, not everything can be done by just turning up and playing the game. QuidditchUK houses eight core departments:

Presidential, Operations, Gameplay, Events, Expansion, Teams, Media and Volunteers.


The Youth department was introduced in 2020 as another integral part to assist QuidditchUK's outreach to younger generations who are interested in playing the sport. However, Youth is considered an auxiliary department alongside the core teams mentioned above.

Our staff who work alongside our National Teams: England, Scotland and Wales are also represented on this page.

Whether you're a Content Creator working within our Media team or the Secretary to the President, all of our volunteers play an important role in making us better than we were yesterday.

Currently, QuidditchUK have 50+ staff members all doing their bit to fulfill each season presented to them.

Interested in finding your place as part of the team? Why not have a look at all the available roles that we're currently recruiting for on our volunteers page.
