Bournemouth Quidditch Club - West Country Rebels

"The local club for players of quidditch, a modern mixed-gender contact sport played internationally."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Quidditch is a fun, full-contact, LGBT+ inclusive mixed-gender sport that is played by teams across the UK and the world. Originally based on the Harry Potter books but now very much its own thing, the last World Cup in 2018 in Florence attracted nearly 30 national teams from 5 continents. 

We have been playing quidditch in Bournemouth since 2016 when BU students started the Bournemouth Banshees. Since then we've played in tournaments such as the British Quidditch Cup and Bournemouth's own Beach Quidditch tournament. Now most experienced members are joining the new South West-wide community team, the West Country Rebels.

Our members have benefitted from being part of a team, both from the social aspect as well as the confidence that comes with participation in competitive sports. Our sport has given leadership opportunities through coaching and captaincies, all valuable experience for young adults.

What We Do

Our pitch is open to anyone over the age of 18, we train once a week with a dedicated coach who will run drills, practise games and more. The government and QuidditchUK have given the go-ahead to quidditch to start socially-distanced training again next month (April), so we should be able to get back to in-person training very soon! However, contact will be limited until it's allowed by government rules. Please contact our page if you're interested in attending!

You can come along to training for free. However, to play competitively, there will be a necessary membership fee to Quidditch UK which will cover the cost of insurance, medical staff at tournaments etc., as well as tournament-specific costs and the price of kit through us.
