De Twentse Thestrals zijn een nieuw sportteam, opgericht door UT-studenten. Ze spelen Dreuzelzwerkbal, gebaseerd op de fictionele sport uit de Harry Potter-boeken. En nee, dit is geen grap.
Twentse Thestrals are a new sports team founded by students of the University of Twente. They play Muggle Quidditch. No, this is not a joke. Quidditch is not only a fictional game from Harry Potter books. Since 2005, it is also a real-life sport played by real muggles (non-magical folk) all over the world. It has broomsticks, it has a quaffle, bludgers, the golden snitch, beaters... Sounds interesting? Then sign up. Twentse Thestrals are currently looking for new team members.
