Why Play Quidditch?
Quidditch is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Physical fitness is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and quidditch brings sport and physical activity to a group of people who may not otherwise be inclined to get out and be active. Many of our players have never participated in sports prior to quidditch. Quidditch offers a safe space for adults and youth to get active and become more involved in the community!
Chasers score by passing or kicking the quaffle through their opponents’ hoops. All goals are worth 10 points.
The keeper defends the goal hoops. Keepers can also act as a fourth chaser during offense.
Beaters use bludgers to “knock out” players, which removes them from play temporarily. “Knocked out” players must dismount their broom and touch their own hoops before re-entering play.
Seekers catch the snitch tail, a ball attached to the waistband of a neutral athlete in a yellow uniform who uses any means to avoid capture. The snitch is worth 30 points and its capture ends the game.
