Matt Bateman Appointed as President


QuidditchUK is excited to announce that taking over the Presidency will be our own Matt Bateman. After two years as Vice President, Matt aims to grow and build on the work that he has done before and take the sport to even greater places both here and abroad.

Matt hopes to develop on the foundations of sustainable organisational growth and infrastructure that has been the focus of many of our volunteers. He wants to see the sport grow in the UK, through seeking new partnerships and building a body of dedicated people to take our “weird not-so-small sport” to the mainstream.

Matt’s love for the community is clear from the many different volunteering roles he has done for the sport. When asked about why he plays he responded: “As difficult and as heart-breaking as this sport can be sometimes, there just isn’t anything like it, we’ve got something special here.”

With Matt stepping into the Presidential role, this means that his previous role of Vice President is now open and available on the QuidditchUK Volunteers Page, and we are actively looking for a new Vice President to join our Executive Team and work with Matt to bring a new direction to the sport we all love.

If you’re interested in coming on board, please get in touch with Matt or Molly via the contact form.
