GFORCE help Keele Quiditch team look the part.

Added 19 Sep 2013 by GFORCE

The UK’s first Quidditch team are now pioneering a new look for this fledging sport courtesy of a bespoke team kit created using the Dye Sublimation service from Gymphlex. After attempting to source an appropriate kit for some time, the team spotted their ideal kit on the competition’s backs and approached GFORCE to see if they were able to create a perfect kit for them too.

Keele Quidditch team was established after the founding member returned from 6 months studying in the United States, where Quidditch is very popular. Fresh with enthusiasm for this emerging sport Megan Shaw returned to Keele University and pulled together an open-minded group of individuals to start training. Zoe Ludford-Brookes, second year American Studies and History student and President of the team continues the story:-
“We were training for quite a while before any other Quidditch teams emerged, so had had plenty of time to sharpen up our game before we had a competitive match. However, our image still needed some work. We had initially requested that all members wore a green top, but with so many different shades of green this created quite a messy look, not the professional unified look we were after. This new GFORCE kit demonstrates the commitment the team shows and reflects the professional way in which we approach the sport – finally we look like a force to be reckoned with.”
Keele Quidditch team were established in 2011, as the first known team in the UK. It is now estimated that over 20 teams regularly play the game, and November 2013 sees the first UK tournament – the British Quidditch Cup.

GFORCE from Gymphlex offer an extensive range of garment templates for any sport. Using these templates, clubs or teams can add their own colours, badges, patterns or designs to create their own perfect kit.
