The biggest ever British Quidditch tournament was held over the weekend at Wayne Manor, but Batman was nowhere to be found. There were 24 teams who gathered at Wollaton Hall and Park where scenes from The Dark Knight Rises were shot.
The host team was the Nottingham Nightmares who fought teams like the Bangor Broken Broomsticks, Durhamstrand and Kent’s Flying Chaucers. Although they don’t fly, they do run about with broomsticks between their legs and play a game that’s part handball, part dodgeball, and part rugby.
Southampton Quidditch Club won the event and even got a trophy for their efforts.
