One of the more interesting raves among larger universities is the incorporation of quidditch, the Harry Potter series sport, now being played by students.
Students are using the sport as a fun and unique way to get together with friends to be competitive against other students at different universities. Del Mar College’s intramural sports program should follow the example of the larger schools and create a quidditch team.
Quidditch at Del Mar will bring more students to campus to play with friends. This, as a result, will create more loyalty and involvement with the school. With the incorporation of the magical sport, Del Mar can compensate for the lack of sports programs with this imaginative competition.
J.K. Rowling’s series has motivated children to read, and now her invention of quidditch will inspire that same generation who grew up with the books to become physically active. So, Vikings, go out and fly your broomstick for the love of quidditch.
