Fictional Game Busts Out in the Big City


Quidditch, the magical sport conjured by J.K. Rowling for the Harry Potter series, is brought to the real world this weekend smack in the heart of NYC.  Featured in the HP novels, films, and video games, the sport was adapted for the real world in 2005 by Middlebury College student Xander Manshel.  Since then, hundreds of teams have been founded, and are overseen by the International Quidditch Association.

This weekend, the IQA is holding its fourth annual World Cup in De Witt Clinton park in New York City. The event runs November 13-14th, and features 76 teams & 757 players.  Stop by and see the game come to life!

 DOBBY!  I get it.  You’re a free elf now.  You’re on your own.  That doesn’t mean you can just crash my nice Quidditch World Cup photo!!
