ABOUT THE TEAM:
Quidditch is a mixed-gender, full-contact sport for two teams of seven players. There are over 300 teams across the world! The sport incorporates elements of rugby, dodgeball and basketball amongst other sports. For more information on the quidditch rules and positions see: https://www.usquidditch.org/about/rules OR https://www.quidditchuk.org/

Of the 32 teams in the UK, The Leeds Griffins are currently ranked 11th. Taking the sport seriously, we are always eager to accept new players with an athletic background and a competitive edge. However, we accommodate for all, so feel free to head along if you're interested in playing a more chilled out sport with great people!
Wednesdays: 1pm Woodhouse Moor
Saturdays: 1pm Woodhouse Moor
If this is your first training session, we suggest you bring along:
-Layers (fleece waterproof etc.)
-Studded shoes (Trainers are fine, but studs make the running a lot easier!)
Each year we travel to quidditch tournaments hosted by other clubs across the country. This year our results have been as follows:
Northern Cup 2016 - 6th place
The British Quidditch Cup 2017 - 11th place
Socials and Quizzitch
The Griffins run regular socials varying from a pint and a meal in the pub to Otley Runs! This year we're planning more weekend trips to places such as obstacle courses and paintballing to help build team cohension and have an excuse to get covered in mud! If getting muddy isn't your thing, come along to our weekly pub quiz, Quizzitch at the Hedley Verity on Fridays, our Christmas ball, and if there's an event you want to organise, just suggest it!
Our membership cost only £15 for the year! This gets you access to all of our socials and to our quidditch training sessions!
