D:Avatar ImageMorgyn says: For those in Australia wishing they could go - we have lots of Quidditch teams here, even if none of them are going to the World Cup this year. The ANU Harry Potter Club in Canberra plays Quidditch every Saturday afternoon, and I know quite a few other universities around Australia have active leagues as well. UNSW, UWS and the Uni of Newcastle come to mind. Try Googling "quidditch + [your state]" and you'll most likely find a team near you.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I so wish I could go. I'll never forget the time I was in NC State and I'm wandering the campus and I stumbled upon a Quidditch match in progress.
