One of J. K. Rowling’s most entertaining creations is Quidditch. The game, famous throughout the Harry Potter series, has been translated into a real-life game. The popularity of “Muggle” Quidditch has risen immensely. Colleges and other organizations form their own leagues, such as UNC Wilmington, who, according to WECT Wilmington, played a charity match at Wrightsville Beach.
UNC Wilmington formed a team last semester, and Saturday, they held their first tournament at Wrightsville Beach. A total of 60 students from across the U.S. joined in on the fun.
Students who participated say that they grew up loving Harry Potter, so it’s great to be able to bring the books to life.
All of the money raised will go to dropout prevention programs run by Communities in Schools of Cape Fear.
Who here has played Quidditch before?
