Quidditch Australia is proud to announce the 2016 Dropbears team that will be representing Australia at the IQA World Cup, held in Frankfurt on the 23rd and 24th of July. Follow our Facebook page for updates leading up to the tournament including fundraising details and exclusive interviews.
After much anticipation, here is the 2016 QUAFL bid package for this year’s premier Australian quidditch tournament!
Coming up this February, QuidCamp is the Australian Quidditch Association’s annual quidditch camp where knowledge and strategy are shared, referees are tested and friendships renewed. QuidCamp consists of seminars and workshops run by our most experienced players, a one-day “fantasy” tournament to apply and practice new-found knowledge, a social function, sleepover and the usual quidkid craziness.
This year quidditch will be a part of the Australian University Sports UniGames, UniBattle 2015. The Australian Quidditch Association, headed by Eva Alexandra and Hannah Monty have been working with the Australian University Sports to create the facilities for quidditch to be played at UniBattle for the first time ever, a huge step forward in establishing quidditch into the mainstream sporting community.
This year, the AQA received more bids than we ever had and while we were happy that more teams and organizations were stepping up and willing to host our championships, it meant decision making was going to be a lot harder.
To cater for the influx of new players following O day events in semester 1, the Board of Directors have devised an additional membership rate for individuals who would like to play for an official team. This rate will run from the month of February through to the 30th of June and will include insurance and other membership perks.
As 2014 draws to a close, the AQA are pleased to announce just a few exciting plans for the coming year.
