British Quidditch Cup 2017

It wasn’t your normal Sunday afternoon in the rural English town of Rugeley this weekend as 14 players riding broomsticks took to the field to become champions of Britain.

That’s because Velociraptors QC and BrizzleBears were playing quidditch, a sport dreamed up by author J.K. Rowling for her Harry Potter books, which is quickly developing into a global sporting alternative.

Countries playing quidditch now span all corners of the globe with the fourth edition of the British Cup, held over the weekend in Rugeley, the latest example of the game’s growth.

In quidditch two teams of seven players compete using four balls: three “bludgers” used to momentarily knock opponents out of the contest and a “quaffle” which a player can put through one of six ring-shaped goals to score.

Matches, which last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, are finished when the golden snitch – a tennis ball stuffed in a stocking worn by an independent player - is caught.

Harry Potter-Sport „Quidditch“: Erste Deutsche Meisterschaft mit Bremer Beteiligung

Die Sportart Quidditch ist den meisten aus den Harry Potter-Romanen bekannt. Jonas Becker hat die Sportart aus den USA nach Bremen geholt. Dabei klemmen sich die Spieler Plastikstangen wie Hexenbesen zwischen die Beine und spielen mit bis zu fünf Bällen in einem Spiel. Zimperlich geht es definitiv nicht zur Sache. Zwei Teams mit je sieben Spielern kämpfen um den Sieg.

Das einstige Fantasiespiel für Zauberer wird mehr und mehr zur anerkannten Vollkontaktsportart. Die International Quidditch Association erkennt inzwischen 18 Nationalverbände an. Der Deutsche Verband hält im Januar seine Winterspiele in München ab. Die Portkeys Bremen werden dann auch dabei sein und ihre erste Deutsche Meisterschaft spielen.
