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.

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.
