Quidditch (sport)

Quidditch is a sport of two teams of seven players each mounted on broomsticks played on a hockey rink-sized pitch. It is based on a fictional game of the same name invented by author J. K. Rowling, which is featured in the Harry Potter series of novels and related media.[3] The game is also sometimes referred to as muggle quidditch to distinguish it from the fictional game which involves magical elements such as flying broomsticks and enchanted balls. In the Harry Potter universe, a "muggle" is a person without the power to use magic.

When people find out I play Quidditch--which I reassure them is an actual sport--it's incredibly difficult to explain exactly how Quidditch is played, because it's very hard to introduce an entirely new concept. I try to relate Quidditch to existing sports, such as dodge-ball, rugby, and basketball, but those sports connections don't give Quidditch justice. Quidditch IS her own sport and an incredible sport to play. Next time the subject of Quidditch appears in conversation, I'll whip out this bad boy primer and fill in the blanks for anyone without the knowledge of the terrific game of Quidditch.
