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, the 2020/2021 season will not be played. QuidditchUK does not expect to run any official competitive quidditch events until the latter half of 2021.
