Referee Requirements

Each attending TEAM (not club) must provide the following referee quota.

For scheduling reasons, only up to 50% of a quota can be provided from a second or third team within the same club.

  • THREE of any combination of Assistant Referees and/or Snitch Referees
  • ONE Snitch Runner
  • ONE First Aider

Teams will also be assigned Goal Referee and Scorekeeping / Timekeeping slots.

Referees must be qualified under the current IQA 2020 Ruleset with QuidditchUK amends.

There will be safety measures in place at the tournament. For tournament attendees, measures will include the following:

Attendees must provide a valid NHS Covid Pass on arrival.

Attendees must register as a spectator, player, or volunteer before attending the tournament.

Attendees must not attend the tournament if they or anyone in their household:

  • Has shown any symptoms of Covid-19 in the 10 days preceding the event.
  • Has tested positive for Covid-19 in the 10 days preceding the event.
  • Has received a notification from the NHS Track and Trace app asking them to self-isolate.

Should attendees be unable to attend the event due to any isolation measures, they or their club should contact the Events Department as soon as they become aware of this.

Attendees must check in at the venue using the NHS Test and Trace app, subject to venue regulations.

Attendees required to wear masks inside buildings.

Attendees encouraged to wear masks outside while not actively playing in games.

Social distancing is encouraged between games.

International travel for the purpose of attending quidditch tournaments is strongly discouraged.

Limited numbers of attendees are allowed in buildings and/or changing rooms at all times.

Attendees must avoid congregating in changing rooms once they have changed or collected their equipment.

Brooms and balls will be regularly disinfected between games.

Where possible players and teams should bring their own brooms. QuidditchUK will still supply brooms throughout the event.

Players are to bring their own headbands and minimise sharing of personal equipment.

Head Referees are to bring their own whistles and cards. No spare cards or whistles will be offered to reduce risk of transmission.

Snitch Runners are to bring their own shorts and snitch socks.

Players are encouraged to avoid shouting near others, since it increases likelihood of droplet transmission. Though we do appreciate this is not always possible or practical in a gameplay environment.

These may be expanded to include further restrictions. Restrictions and the entire running of the events in the 2021-22 season may be changed depending on the situation. QuidditchUK may choose to enforce further restrictions or cancel events entirely if:

  • Government or regional restrictions change regarding the hosting of events during the pandemic.
  • Further variants of concern emerge.
  • Too many players or volunteers are required to self-isolate preceding the event. 
  • Other changes occur which mean that the event is deemed unsafe or unfeasible to run.
