The Vienna Vanguards, Vienna’s first quidditch team, are hosting a quidditch taster session for us!
Quidditch is a highly inclusive, mixed gender, full-contact sport that was founded in the US 11 years ago. 3 years ago it reached Austria, and by now there are three teams in Austria (two in Vienna and one in Graz). Everybody, regardless of gender, cultural origin, age, sports background etc. can play quidditch since there is a position for everybody. It is often described as a combination of rugby, dodgeball, and basketball.
First there will be a short introduction to the rules, then we’ll do a warm-up together, after which we will do a few drills to get used to the balls and brooms. After all of that there will be lots of time to play games.
MEETING POINT: We will meet at the Jesuitenwiese in between the two playgrounds. You will see the hoops there!!
– sports shoes (if you have football boots/cleats you can bring those),
– water (there is a well where you can refill you bottles), and
– weather-appropriate sports clothes.
We’re looking forward to playing with you! 🙂
