It's been a rough year.
But in the absence of the opportunity run any events in the first half of the 2020-21 season, QuidditchUK are hosting the inaugural British Quizzitch Cup.
This will be a community event to bring UK quidditch players and volunteers together for an evening of fun, trivia, and nostalgia for the days we used to be able to spend on a muddy field at ungodly hours of the morning.
Teams will compete for the chance to be crowned national champions of Quidditch Knowledge, with proceeds from the event split between a charity and QuidditchUK.
We can't wait to get back on pitch again - but until then, we'd love to see some of you on Thursday 26th November to celebrate the quidditch community that we've all been missing - and compete for some prizes!
Register as an individual or as a team using the Google Form by Tuesday 24th November at 6pm.
No - teams can be comprised of quidditch players (or non-players!) from any clubs in the UK and beyond. No restrictions on who can participate!
Teams should be made up of 2-6 people. If you don't have a team - or would like to make some new friends - sign up as an individual and the committee will match you up with some others to make a team!
This is a community event and we wanted it to be accessible to all, so quiz entries are pay-what-you-like. Our suggested ticket price is £2, but if you want to contribute more or less you are welcome. Plus, for each £1 you pay, you'll receive one entry into the QuidditchUK merch raffle!
Payment details will be emailed to participants after they have registered.
QuidditchUK will provide a shortlist of charities, which will be created based on suggestions that teams and individuals give in their registration forms. From this shortlist, the winning team of the quiz will get to choose which charity we donate the proceeds to.
Aside from the winning team choosing the charity we donate to, prizes for both quiz success and winning the raffle will include a selection of QuidditchUK merch!
