QuidditchUK facilitates the main competitive quidditch season for UK quidditch clubs by organising fixtures and tournaments throughout the year, for both university and community teams. Below you can find an outline of the official events that we run, as well as guidance for attending our events as a player, volunteer, or spectator.
Please note that due to the impacts of COVID-19 in the UK and concerns for player safety, 2020/2021 will run as a reduced season. Changes or cancellations that apply to this season are noted below. This is subject to change as the situation develops.
Regular one-day fixtures where our community teams are split into divisions and compete to become QuidditchUK Community League Champions.
