Announcing the new QuidditchUK Vice-President


We’re incredibly excited to announce that Abby Whiteley will be joining the Executive Management Team as the new Vice President.

Abby brings with her nearly a decade of quidditch experience, being involved with the sport since almost the inception of QuidditchUK – having been part of the community as a player, committee leader, club captain, and Team UK athlete at Global Games 2014.

Her years of experience bring invaluable insight as we enter into our 7th season, and with the demands of quidditch and QuidditchUK constantly changing, she’ll provide knowledge and wisdom that will continue to push us forward.

With her joining us, Abby has this to say:

I can’t wait to take on this role in QuidditchUK; as a long-time player I’ve benefited enormously from their work over the years and I’m excited to contribute to that work. I believe there is a lot of space for us to grow, and I’m particularly interested in using community input and research to inform our direction and the future of our sport in the UK.

Abby joins Matt Bateman in the Presidential department, taking on key leadership and decision making responsibilities that will impact the sport and influence our future direction. Those familiar with her research and analytical reporting will know that Abby has a keen insight into the quidditch community, and we’re excited to have her on board as we expand the sport to appeal and work for players old and new throughout the country.

A huge congratulations to you, Abby, and the best of luck in your new role.

Matt Bateman
