The Radcliffe Chimeras, named after the Oxford landmark the Radcliffe Camera, are the first competitive team of OUQC. They select from the second team, the Oxford Quidlings, to make a fierce competitive squad to play against some of the toughest teams in the UK and Europe.
Being part of the Chimeras is an exciting and challenging part of a player’s career, as it allows people to play at the highest level of the sport that Europe can offer, and to join a close-knit group of people committed to improving and supporting each other.
The Oxford Quidlings are the second team of OUQC, and are open to be joined by any member of OUQC. They may not be at the level of the Chimeras, but the Quidlings still regularly win matches and tournaments.
Every player remembers their first team, and for many at OUQC that was the Quidlings. They form a fantastically relaxed and supporting community of friends that will never leave you, and are the perfect team for anyone either learning the sport or looking for a more laid-back experience.
