Visit Howard County, in partnership with Howard County Recreation & Parks and Maryland Sports, will welcome the U.S. Quidditch (USQ) for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship, which will take place Nov. 3-4, 2018, at Troy Park, Elkridge.
Quidditch is a full contact, competitive, mixed-gender sport inspired by the Harry Potter series. It began in 2005 and has since spread to more than 300 colleges, high schools and community teams nationwide; U.S. Quidditch officials will bring 25 collegiate and adult teams, making it its biggest event of the season. Admission for spectators is free and open to the public.
U.S. Quidditch will teach youth quidditch Saturday and Sunday to elementary, middle and high school students. Participants can sign-up on site to participate. Parental waivers will be available at the event or can be requested in advance at by contacting [email protected]; those interested in volunteering can learn more at www.usquidditch.org/events/special/regional-championships/officiate-and-volunteer.
