Berlin Bluecaps crowned European Quidditch champions

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

The Berlin Bluecaps on Sunday (April 14) won the European Quidditch Championships Division 2 final against fellow German team Looping Lux Leipzig, with a score of 120-50.

The Harry Potter-inspired tournament attracted over 300 players from across Europe, with 16 teams from Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Germany, UK, Austria, Czech Republic, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland taking part in the two day competition.

Quidditch is based on the fictional game, of the same name, invented by Harry Potter Author J.K Rowling which involves magical elements such as flying broomsticks and enchanted balls.

The sport transcended from fiction to fact in 2005 on college campuses in the U.S and is now played by thousands of people across the globe.

The game is played on rectangular pitched and to score contestants most throw a ball, known as a Quaffle, through hoops on the opposing side.

A hoop score is worth ten points but the game is only ended once the snitch, a person dressed in yellow with a flag or ball attached to their shorts is caught.

The event in the Polish capital is the second division of the European tournament with the first division event taking place in May in Harelbeke, Belgium.
