We are the Twentse Thestrals, the Dutch champion of quidditch. Quidditch is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. We take elements of rugby, dodgeball and handball and mix these into a new, fast-paced, full contact, co-ed sport. Due to the chaotic nature of our sport – there are five balls in the game – the main focus is on tactics. Our open community welcomes players from all walks of life, all athletic abilities, and all gender identities. Come on by to see what quidditch is all about!

Open training:

We organize several open practices each year, to which everyone is welcome. All the game elements will be explained, so after the practice you will be a real quidditch player! Like our Facebook pagina so you can be updated about our next open practices. It is also possible to join a regular training. Be sure to contact us by emailing or Facebook, so we know you are coming.

Have you always wanted to play quidditch with your association, friends, or colleagues? We can arrange that! We can organize a complete workshop, tailored to your wishes. We will explain all the game elements through fun games and in the end, you will split up into two teams for a real match. We can give our workshop in any well-lit grass field that is large enough.
