Andreas’s Top Picks

UBC Thunderbirds Quidditch Sport Club

UBC TSC is a very powerful tool to promote Quidditch as a sport an enhance athletic involvement within the UBC community. The tools that this program offers to our athletes and the team range from financial support for nationals to leadership development. It is a new chapter in the history of Quidditch at UBC that we want to use to make this sport an establishment within the community.

The UBC Thunderbirds Quidditch Sport Club is a competitive team with a year-long season. Based on the sport of the same name from the “Harry Potter” series, Quidditch blends elements of rugby, dodgeball, handball, and even flag football, for a an intense and exciting experience.  The team competes with other teams from all over Canada as well as the northwestern US. If you’re looking for a strong sense of community and to try something new, the UBC Thunderbirds Quidditch Sport Club is the definitely a team to think about.
