Quidditch is a new, inclusive sport loosely based on the fictional sport on the same name. Queens University Belfast Quidditch Club (QUBQC) is a new club and the first of its kind in Northern Ireland. QUBQC is a place where people of all levels of fitness and gender can come along and give the game a go, whether interested in Harry Potter or not.
The sport is full contact and mixed gender played both at a club level and internationally. At club level QUBQC enjoyed multiple friendlies against Dublin and a tournament in England last year, we are looking forward to the addition of an Ireland Cup that includes the newly formed Cork team. We are also proud that 5 of our players were selected to represent Ireland this summer at the European Games in Oslo.
A bizarre mixture of rugby and dodgeball bring the sport of Harry Potter to the muggle world, still working on the flying part though.
