Quadball Announced as New Name


Following the USQ and MLQ announcement in December of last year, we're pleased to announce we are joining USQ and other national governing bodies in renaming our sport to Quadball. 

QuidditchUK support this great moment in the development of our sport, which is both symbolically and practically significant. The name change indicates a firm stance with our trans players and members, as well as giving us more firm legal footing and opening up greater opportunities for funding and external partners. 

We’d like to thank our members who participated in the QUK survey, IQA volunteers for the international survey, and USQ and MLQ for taking the lead on this project. 

QUK are happy with the name that USQ have chosen, which was the second most popular name among our own members. At some point in the future, players should expect the balls and snitch to also be renamed, however details of this are not yet confirmed. We intend to move ahead with the QUK rebrand later this year, and will provide guidance for clubs alongside this.
