- What does the game entail? Can people play even if they don’t know the rules?
Quidditch is a semi-contact sport with a unique mix of elements from rugby, dodgeball, and tag. Matches are played between two teams of seven players riding broomsticks, using four balls: a Quaffle, two Bludgers, and a Golden Snitch. Bludgers are very lightweight foam balls used to tag people out of play for a brief period of time, quaffles are used for scoring, and capturing the snitch can win a team the entire game. Six ring-shaped goals are situated atop poles of different heights, three on each side of the field. We will go over the rules before the start of the game.
