Description

An annual duelling championship

The Dunstable Duelling Championship is an annual duelling tournament held "in the furthest most [sic] field" from Dunstable Town Hall. It is run by the British Wizard Duelling Association.[1] Gilderoy Lockhart had a certificate claiming that he won this championship,[1] but given his poor ability in this field of magic, it was likely a forgery.

Lockhart also included the question "Has Gilderoy Lockhart ever won the Dunstable Duelling Championship for Wizards or just been pipped at the post?" on a pop quiz concerning himself that he gave to his second-year Defence Against the Dark Arts students in 1992.[2] One student answered "Pipped to the post, I'm afraid,"[2] and another answered, "Always won."[3]
