In this week of quidditch volunteers, we would like to give a shout out to a member of Belgian Quidditch Federation and its staff, Lore Badts. She has been working very hard in many quidditch organisations.
Lore has been an active member of the quidditch community for a while now. Ever since she joined, she’s worked on different projects both nationally and internationally. She joined Belgian Quidditch Federation when she was writing her bachelors thesis on the identity and image of the organisation.
While completing her thesis, she officially joined BQF as Communications- and Marketing Director. Through this function, she focussed on various tasks within Quidditch Belgium. She worked on the rebranding of the identity and image of BQF, helped to organise Belgium’s first European Qualifier Tournament. She has also gotten a lot of media attention for quidditch in Belgium. In 2018 Lore became the Gryffins’ Team Manager for World Cup.
This year she will make her return to the Gryffins staff as Assistant Team Manager. Next, she joined Quidditch Premier League as Communications Executive for Belgium and the Netherlands. On top of this, Lore was also involved in the organisation of European Quidditch Cup 2019 D1 as Assistant Tournament Director. Recently, she has also joined the team of new organisation Q Consultancy. Lore is not only active off pitch. Often you can spot her on pitch as chaser for Brussels’ Wonderful Sprouts or as a referee.
Not only because of her hard work and great vision within different organisations, but also because of her motivation, social spirit and enthusiasm, Lore has become an unmissable part of the quidditch community.
