Brooms Up

The Road to World Cup

Nelson Pitch Marker Tutorial.docx - Google Drive →


I have invented this measuring device for the purposes of increasing the efficiency of quidditch tournament setup. This tutorial was created with cones in mind, but there is no reason why it cannot be used to paint, tape, or chalk a pitch. I’ve only given it one test run, but in that test run I was able to mark a pitch by myself in under 16 minutes. I estimate with help or practice it can be done even quicker.

The story of Texas VII →



I remember well the story of Texas VI. Everyone does. Everyone talked about the powerful, extremely effective, scary team that walked with swagger and hit like lightning. Perhaps there were slight bumps along the way – the losses to Baylor come to mind – but every team at WCVI knew that…


* TeamUK Player Profiles (Part 2) *

As promised, here’s another 10 profiles TeamUK player profiles. Considering I made them all within two days (including sourcing photos of player I did not know personally), they have come out ok. 

My only regret is that I wish I had more photos of the team in their national kit.

Ah well. Will make a note of it for next time.

Just have one more player left. I’m sure you can guess who it is. Then something special on the actual Global Games day.

I’m excited. Are you?

So I went to London Film and Comic Con yesterday. I was thinking of wearing my TeamUK shirt but, due to the hot weather, I just stuck it in my bag.

After meeting up with a few other quidditch players, we came up with the idea that we could get TV and film stars to show their support for Team UK for the upcoming IQA Global Games.

Here are a selection of photo highlights.

They went online about 2 hours ago and my laptop almost went into meltdown due to the number of responses QUK got.

My favourite one is of Ellie Kendrick (Meera from Game of Thrones). She was about to leave but was super excited to be apart of it, she stayed for a few more minutes. She’s also incredibly photogenic.

#SUPPORTTHE42 Many thanks to Sarah, Ben and Amy (who came up with original idea) for representing QUK at the con.
