Assignment – Vancouver Magazine – UBC Quidditch Team

I recently had a rather unusual assignment for Vancouver Magazine – Can you go and take a few photos of the UBC Quidditch Team… sure but…. question #1, what is Quidditch(or Muggle Quidditch as they call it) in the first place?

From wikipedia:
“A sport based on Quidditch, the fictional sport developed by British author J. K. Rowling in the Harry Potter series of children’s novels. As in the fictional sport, muggle quidditch has seven players on each team: 3 chasers, 2 beaters, 1 keeper and 1 seeker. Muggle quidditch has been adapted for play on the ground, with game play confined to a playing field comparable in size to a hockey rink. The sport is adapted using elements of rugby, dodgeball, tag, wrestling and lacrosse.”

And here is the kicker: “All players are required to carry a broom between their legs at all times.”

Sounds interesting and watching Quidditch also turns out to be quite an unusual, surreal and rather intense experience.

 

If this is something you want to see for yourself(which I would recommend), you can check out their Facebook page HERE for more info.
Also, to get the full story you can pick up a copy of the December issue of VanMag at your local Vancouver news stand:)

Anyways, here are two outtakes from their practice.
