The 2013 Canadian Cup Quidditch Tournament

  • Cherry Beach Fields (199 Unwin Avenue)
  • 8 a.m.

Grab the nearest broomstick, because the Canadian Cup Quidditch Tournament is making its way to Toronto for the very first time. For those unfamiliar with the sport, Muggle Quidditch is sort of like Rugby, but players play with broomsticks between their legs. Take a stroll down memory lane, and check out a feature we did on said sport a few years back. And if a full day of Quidditch matches isn’t enough for you, there’s also an afterparty that you can sign up for here.
