Our national teams represent the very best of quidditch athleticism and sportsmanship in the United Kingdom. With our top players training and competing under the leadership of a dedicated group of volunteer coaches and managers that build our squads to the best they can possibly be.
Team UK was founded in 2012 and competed in the very first iteration of the World Cup, the 2012 Summer Games hosted in Oxford; where Team UK competed against the United States, France, Canada, and Australia in a competition that ultimately saw the United States of America take the gold medal and launch what would become a regular series of European Championships and World Cups across the globe over the coming years.
Since then, Team UK has gone onto compete at the highest levels of international quidditch, frequently medaling and even winning the 2017 IQA European Games in Oslo, Norway.
In 2021,QuidditchUK worked closely with our national team managers and the International Quidditch Association, to create a system that allows England, Scotland and Wales to have better representation and competitive opportunities at not only European Games, but also at the Quidditch World Cup as well.
Officially, this means that we have retired the Team UK national team and brand, and have transitioned into three independently managed teams of Team England, Team Scotland and Team Wales. With this new announcement we’re excited to start a new chapter with our national teams, building on the legacy already established and cemented by the volunteers and athletes that built Team UK.

Our national teams represent the absolute best of what of the sport can be in the United Kingdom, and our athletes and coaches cement that belief.
