Asian-Pacific Quadball Cup (APQC) is a club level quadball competition with the participation of clubs in the region of Asia and Oceania. The competition held this year in Hanoi, Vietnam is the fourth time since 2016, and marks the return of the sport at international level after two year hiatus due to the global pandemic COVID-19.

In the previous tournaments, Australian were the champions with different representatives – ANU Owls in 2016 (Kuala Lumpur), 2017 (Hanoi) and Sydney City Serpents in 2019 (Seoul). Although the world champions kept winning the trophy, it was undeniable that the way they won was more and more challenging as teams from other countries improved rapidly. Since World Cup 2018 – with four Asian representatives, quadball has grown expansively in the Pacific-Asia region with the most dynamic activities were reported in Japan and Vietnam. However, all sports activities were hindered during the pandemic and it is just re-introduced to the public recently, and still be heavily impacted by international travelling restrictions. In such circumstance, Vietnam is delighted to re-start the tradition by hosting this year’s tournament, and we expect to see players from Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Laos and Vietnam competing for the championship.

& Fixtures

Game Rules

The tournament will use IQA Rulebook 2020 as the basis for all refereeing activities. The IQA Rulebook 2022 will not be used as it was released too recent and there has not been enough time for teams to adapt.

Time Cap

Every game on Day 1 will apply a time cap of 50 minutes (including stoppage time). If the two teams are tied after 50 minutes, the match will be counted as a draw.

The time cap will be extended if there is a non-gameplay stoppage such as for equipment or officials reasons. In such cases, the extension of time will be based on the actual situation on a case-by-case basis and will be decided by the Tournament Director.

The same time cap rule applies for consolation matches on Day 2.

On Day 2, semi-final matches under the single elimination bracket will apply a time cap of 50 minutes plus one goal/snitch catch. That means if the two teams are tied after 50 minutes (including stoppages), the game continues until either team gains any more points afterwards (by either scoring a goal or making a good snitch catch) and wins the game immediately.

The Final match has no time cap.

Day 1 Format

As there are seven teams, and no seeding is feasible due to lack of recent international quadball events in the region, the group stage on Day 1 will use blind draw to create a shortened round robin. While a full round robin will see each team playing six matches against all opponents once each, a shortened round robin will give each team equally four matches, with no repetitive opponent.

The game can be illustrated as below, with each line portrays a match between the two teams at the two ends. 

The blind draw was taken place on 4 December 2022. The result was published as above.

In total fourteen matches of the Group Stage will be played on Day 1 (Saturday 17 December 2022).

Day 1 Ranking Mechanism


All 7 teams will earn points based on their match results, specifically as below:

Result Points given
Lose out-of-SWIM 0
Lose in-SWIM 1
Draw 2
Win in-SWIM 3
Win out-of-SWIM 4

SWIM is shortened for Snitch-When-It-Matters, i.e. the situation where the quaffle difference between the two matching teams is not greater than 30.

Out-of-SWIM: the quaffle difference is 40 or above

In-SWIM: the quaffle difference is 30 or below


When 2 or more teams' points are tied, the ranking of these teams will be based on the below indicators (if applicable) and in this exact order of priority:

1. Head-to-head result among the tied teams;

2. Number of snitch catches in SWIM in the matches among the tied teams;

3. Quaffle point difference in the matches among the tied teams;

4. Total number of snitch catches in-SWIM;

5. Total quaffle point difference;

6. Fair-play indicators (number of cards) ; and

7. Coin toss.

Note: This ranking mechanism will also apply to the final ranking of the bottom three on Day 2.

Day 2 Format

The top 4 teams according to Day 1 Ranking will play in the upper bracket, in single elimination format. The upper bracket results will rank teams from the 1st to 4th of the tournament.

The bottom 3 teams according to Day 1 Ranking will play in the consolation bracket, in round robin format. The consolation bracket results will rank teams from the 5th to 7th of the tournament.

Individual Honours

Individuals with outstanding performance during the whole tournament will be praised with specific awards as below:

- Top Goalscorer (AMAB/AFAB)

- Best Quaffle Player (AMAB/AFAB)

- Best Beater (AMAB/AFAB)

- Best Seeker

- Most Valuable Player

- Best VII

All the votes are counted by team captains. Each captain vote has equal value.

The logo of AQPC this year resembles a softshell turtle, a rare species of aquatic turtle, living for hundreds of years in the Hoan Kiem Lake in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Stories of Hoan Kiem Lake told that in the fifteenth century, Le Loi, who later became an emperor of Vietnam and the founder of Le Dynasty, was struggling in the fight against Minh Dynasty from the North. During a trip on the lake, the Golden Turtle God – under the appearance of the recent softshell turtle – brought him a sacred sword, which led him to the final victories and helped the establishment of Le Dynasty. Until today, there is a temple next to the lake – Ngoc Son Temple – open to the public to remember the help of the Turtle God. Inside the temple, visitors can also pay a visit to a turtle’s body, which is preserved from 1967. At the center of the lake, a small oriental tower, publicly called Turtle Tower, was erected in the 19th century then became a symbolic feature of Hanoi.

The logo features the turtle with its shell patterns resemble three hoops of the quadball sport underneath the Turtle Tower. Many said that the logo well reflected the culture of Hanoi with a meaningful story behind it, and also implicitly refers to the wish for a long-living sport of quadball.

The logo was designed by ShinDz, the talented designer behind most artworks by VQA, from the organisation of AQC’2017 to Team Vietnam’s fundraising campaign for IQA World Cup 2019.

The use of this logo and any recognisable element of it outside the quadball community and/or for any other purpose rather than promoting APQC’2022 is strictly prohibited.

to us

For us, every penny counts

Vietnam Quidditch Association is a non-profit organisation run on a shoestring budget, mainly contributed by the members. During the past 2 years, crises brought on by the long COVID-19 period made us witness the departure of many veteran players. With the majority of remaining members being students or fresh graduates, we face severe financial hardships in maintaining the sport and organizing professional events.

Our dream is to nurture passion, promote inclusivity, and make Quadball accessible for everyone. On this special occasion, we aim to market the sport through out not only Vietnam but many emerging areas around the continent with professional livestream and other media outlets. However, this dream would never be possible without the support of our fellow communities. Thus, we kindly ask for the generosity of the worldwide Quadball’s alumni, active members, and other donors. Even a small donation goes a long way in helping young enthusiasts to enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of this unique sport.

We value our donors and take great care to show our gratitude. During the AQC2022 campaign, we offer exclusive AQC2022 merchandise as appreciation tokens for every contribution from $10. Please see more details below.
