Description

Quidditch is a full-contact, co-ed sport adapted from the Harry Potter series. This emerging sport is played in more than 20 countries around the world and combines elements of rugby, handball, dodgeball, and wrestling. With four distinct positions and as many as five balls in play at once, quidditch is both mentally and athletically demanding - far from “a bunch of nerds running around on brooms.” As a part of the team, you will participate in tournaments across Canada and the United States at a highly competitive level. Guelph Quidditch is well known for being one of the best teams in Canada, winning the 2018 National Tournament and the 2019 Regionals Tournament. For those who would like a more relaxed introduction to quidditch, we also offer a recreational league open to all levels of athletic experience and ability.
