Kick-off new season 2017-2018

Say ‘snitch’! Yesterday we spend the day in Utrecht’s Park Transwijk to kick off the new quidditch season with about 40 people, which is almost half of all quidkids in the Netherlands! We are especially proud of the team in Eindhoven that just started their trainings a week ago, and hope to see all teams at friendlies again soon. A toast, to a spectacular season!

Dom Tower Dementors win spring competition 2017

After a series of games that stayed exciting until the very last minute, the Dom Tower Dementors from Utrecht arose on top, making them the winners of the spring halfseason of the QNL Dutch Quidditch League. The Dementors’ score ended with five won games, four of which outside of SWIM range. During these games they managed to catch the snitch four times, one of those resulting in a win during SWIM range. With both a strong defense and strong offense the Dementors have shown themselves all-rounders with star players in every situation.

Earlier this season the Dementors also managed to win the autumn halfseason, as well as the Dutch qualificationgames for the European Quidditch Cup.

Second place went to the North Sea Nargles from Amsterdam/Leiden, with five won games, three of them out of SWIM range, and five snitch catches. The Wageningen Werewolves became third, with newcomers Rotterdam Ravens ending fourth.
