Alex Benepe is the founder and commissioner of the International Quidditch Association, the governing body of quidditch, a new sport adapted from the fictional sport of Quidditch in the Harry Potter books. Alex has led the growth of quidditch from a dozen students who first adapted the game from the books so they could play on a field behind their dorm in 2005, to its current roster today of more than 200 teams, 4,000 dues-paying registered players, and millions of fans globally.
