Season 2019/2020 ended

Quidditch Nederland officially declares the competitive season of 2019/2020 as ended.

Due to the outbreak of the corona virus CoVid-19, the board has decided to cancel all remaining league days of the season. After the government’s decision to cancel all events until the 1st of September 2020, we unfortunately have no other choice. The 2019/2020 season ends immediately.

None of the participating teams is recognized as the winner of Dutch Quidditch League 2019/2020. No prize will be awarded either. The Twentse Thestrals finish in first place.

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.

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.
