.Running an Event as a Member
Quidditch Australia organises several events across the year for the enjoyment of all its members, including The Dropbears’ Campaign, State Shield, and QUAFL. However, many events are also run across the country and around the year by our various member organisations. These events can range from weekly and monthly state leagues to fantasy tournaments and much more. Quidditch Australia is committed to ensuring a consistent high quality of events to facilitate, promote, and control the sport of quidditch nationwide. For this reason, we have compiled various resources, templates, information, and fact sheets in one place, to assist the beginner or seasons event organiser.
