Snitch Runners

Arguably one of the most recognisable aspects of the game and a cornerstone of the sport, snitch runners are fundamental to what makes quidditch what it is. Exhilarating and heartbreaking all at once, a good snitch greatly raises the stakes of a competitive match, and being an important part of a vital qualification or championship match between two clubs can be exhilarating and rewarding in its own right.

Good snitch runners must be fast, smart, and strong; able to maintain full awareness on a chaotic quidditch pitch, fending off seekers of differing technique and size, all while staying agile enough to escape capture. Like our players, snitches come from any gender, ability, or background; and no two are ever the same.

UK Snitches are paid nominal amounts that scale with your experience and ability, and non-playing snitches at official QuidditchUK events have their travel and accommodation supplemented in addition to their payment.

If you're interested in becoming a snitch, or want to find out more, please get in touch with our Gameplay Department.
