With the new university semesters starting up in the next two weeks, our three university clubs; the Monash Muggles Quidditch Club , Melbourne Unicorns and La Trobe Trolls, are all hosting Come and Try events at their respective campuses for students of all year levels to come and give quidditch a go and potentially join their university’s team. To find out more about these events, see below!
MONASH MUGGLES QUIDDITCH CLUB: Monash University Clayton Campus
The Monash Muggles Quidditch Club will be running quidditch ‘Come and Try’s’ and demonstrations on the Wednesday (22nd) and Thursday (23rd) of O-week from 1-3pm. These sessions will be held at Campus Park, also known casually as the ‘Res Lawn’ as it is next to the new residential halls on Sports Walk. You’ll be able to try your hand at seeking, beating, chasing and keeping on either of the two days.
This year the Monash Muggles Quidditch Club is also expanding to offer two teams for Monash students to join; The Muggles aimed at being a top tier competitive team on the Victorian Quidditch scene, and The Mudbloods, aimed at students who wish to play on a more casual basis, enjoy the social aspects of the sport, and still have heaps of fun playing quidditch.
Don’t forget to also head down to the O-Week Clubs and Societies stalls to purchase your Monash Muggles club membership for 2017!

Get hippity hyped for the last training of La Trolls Quidditch Club before the semester! If you’re going to the Moonlight Cinema on Simpson Lawn, why not head in a bit early and come give Quidditch a try!
This come and try training session will be held on Wednesday the 22nd between 5-7pm.
Trolls train weekly, 5-7pm Wednesdays behind the library at La Trobe Bundoora, so if you can’t make it this week there’s always next week!
We’re a casual competitive team that’s recruiting La Trobe students to join our ranks for the 2017 Victorian quidditch season – starting in April.
Come along in sports clothes, running shoes, and bring a water bottle and a fun sprit.
