Dating back to early 2011 the Melbourne Manticores are one of the founding members of Quidditch in Victoria and are the longest running community team in Australia. Throughout the years the team has continually found success at tournaments, winning numerous titles ranging from local league tournaments up to national championships.
The team is made up of players of all skill levels, some having been around since the start of Australian Quidditch and others who are still learning the game. The Melbourne Manticores pride themselves in having a very high level of experience across the board with members representing both state and national squads.
The Manticores place great importance on the continuous improvement of our team on and off the field. Regular trainings are run throughout the season prioritising teamwork, skill development and fitness while having fun. Away from the field we look to improve team cohesion by running frequent social events. The Manticores are proud to be a tight-knit group of teammates and friends.
If you are interested in joining the Manticores for a training session or keen to get involved in Quidditch, please message the Melbourne Manticores facebook page for information about training sessions or with any other questions.
