Victoria Quidditch team seeks new members

Alejo Enriquez, a professor at Victoria College and founder of the Victoria Spartans - shares more about the sport

VICTORIA, Texas – For those of you familiar with the wizarding world of Harry Potter you may be surprised to hear that Victoria has its very own Quidditch team.

Alejo Enriquez, a professor at Victoria College and founder of the Victoria Spartans shares more about the sport.

“You don’t need any Harry Potter knowledge to play,” Enriquez said. “Sometimes people misapprehend it, that they think like it’s roleplaying, like it’s Harry Potter time with your friends but it’s a real sport, it has nationals and international games and it is played across the world.”

And several of the championship teams are from Texas says Enriquez, because it’s a sport that tends to draw former high school football players that begin playing Quidditch in college.
