The Caerphilly Catapults are a Welsh Quidditch team that play in the British and Irish Quidditch League. They were formed in 1402, and play in robes of alternating light green and scarlet vertical stripes.[1]

The Catapults have won the League Cup eighteen times, and the European Cup once, in 1956, when they defeated the Karasjok Kites of Norway.[1]

They played in 1921 against the Tutshill Tornados and lost as the Tornados' Seeker Roderick Plumpton caught the Snitch in three-and-a-half seconds, an English record.[1]
