The 2017 Quidditch Canada Western Regional Championship

2017 Quidditch Canada Western Regional ChampionshipAbbotsford will once again play host to the Quidditch Canada Western Regional Championship, November 18th and 19th, 2017 at Mouat Fields. That’s right: Quidditch, as in Harry Potter, the award winning fantasy book series from J.K. Rowling.

Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know that Quidditch had been translated into a real sport, complete with broomsticks, blodgers, and golden snitches. The game (which is not associated with, licensed or sponsored by J.K. Rowling) is still growing – but growing it is. In fact, this is the second year in a row that sees Abbotsford hosting the Quidditch Canada Western Regional Championship.

Outside of the fantasy series, Quidditch is played on the ground, not whizzing about in the air aboard a broomstick. Don’t be too disappointed, though – the players are still required to “ride” broomsticks. Instead of sitting atop them, however, they are required to carry them about as if they were riding them.

Imagine running around a field, trying to get a ball through a hoop and avoid opponents, all the while pretending to ride a broomstick. It sounds more than a little crazy – but what it is is a real challenge!
