The third Asian Quidditch Cup (“AQC”) will be held in Seoul, South Korea from 27 to 28 July 2019. Hoping to make its first appearance in the AQC, the HKU Quidditch Club is now recruiting players from students and alumni of HKU!
The following persons are eligible for representing HKU in the AQC:

– Alumni of HKU
Players who are selected must become a member of the Hong Kong Quidditch Association AND HKU Quidditch Club, and pay the prescribed membership fees.
Everyone interested in quidditch is suitable for playing in the AQC. Prior experience in team sports or quidditch is NOT required.
To join the team, you should:

2. Attend the recruitment day on 23 March 2019 to learn how to play quidditch and participate in some drills
Another recruitment day will be held in April for players who missed the one on 23 March.
To familiarise themselves with the rules of quidditch and basic skills and tactics, players should attend the weekly training sessions before the AQC. We understand that players might not be able to attend the sessions during assignment/exam periods.
All players must gather at Seoul by noon on 26 July 2019 (Friday). Players are advised to arrive 1-2 days earlier to settle down and meet fellow team members.
Players can take a flight back in the morning of 29 July 2019 (Monday).

Selected players must buy at least a set of jersey and shorts for the AQC.
