Joining the Media department will be Massimo Galli (Graphic Design), Sherry Du (Social Media) and Kye-Lee Cheong (Editorial) from Victoria, and Maaika Tredrea (Social Media) from South Australia.

Wrackspurts QC win the 2016 Australian Quidditch Championship

The Wrackspurts Quidditch Club have become the 2016 Australian Quidditch Champions defeating the second placed Western Sydney Quidditch club in a incredibly close game, with the Wrackspurts winning 120*-110.

This year’s Australian Quidditch Championship (AusQC) was the largest quidditch tournament held in Australia, featuring 23 teams and nearly 400 players from across the country.

Held at the Australian Institute of Sport for the first time, the legitimacy of quidditch in Australia continues to grow. Bringing together people of non-sporting and sporting backgrounds, the sport continues to establish itself at the forefront of gender equality for sports in Australia.
