Be the golden snitch in the world of quaffles
Curious about Quadball, formerly known as Quidditch? As a EuroGames first, we are proud to offer a Quadball workshop and exhibition match together with our partners, the Swiss Quadball Association (SQV) and the International Quadball Association (IQA).
Quadball is a competitive sport growing rapidly around the world, played by all ages from school-age children to adults. It is known as an especially gender-inclusive and queer-friendly sport.
Originally based on the fictional sport in the Harry Potter series, Quadball was adapted to a physical and tactical sport while maintaining the spirit of the source material by fans in 2005. It has since grown into a worldwide phenomenon and is one of the few mixed-gender full contact sports. Quadball is played in over 30 countries and governed by the International Quadball Association (IQA).
Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity of learning the basics of this sport. Everybody is welcome, regardless of skill level and personal fitness.
