From The Guardian:
“Despite its success in the States and Canada, Muggle Quidditch has been slow to catch on in the home of the Harry Potter stories, although it has been attempted by students at universities including Nottingham and Warwick and there has been talk of setting up a British league.
Barry and his fellow players hope that its time has finally come. “The word is spreading,” he said. “I think each time we’ve played we’ve pretty much doubled our numbers. We started off with 20, then 40, then 80.” Many of the players would like to see Quidditch recognised as an official university sport, a step that would open the way to a Varsity match against Cambridge and a Half Blue, such as Ultimate Frisbee and Eton Fives.”
