Quidditch is a sport in which two teams of seven players face off on a grass pitch. The game is called Muggle Quidditch to distinguish it from the fantasy game of the same name in the so-called “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” from which it originates. In the J. K. Rowling saga the characters play Quidditch by flying on broomsticks and using magic balls. Invented in 2005, Muggle quidditch is a growing sport that is played in many countries and has been adapted using elements of rugby, dodgeball and soccer. The rules are defined by the International Quidditch Association (IQA); the various leagues and tournaments are managed both by the IQA and by the individual national sports federations.There are three hunters, two batters, a goalkeeper and a seeker. Hunters must shoot, kick, or otherwise throw the quaffle through one of the opposing team’s rings to score 10.The goalkeeper protects the rings by trying to block the opposing team’s shots. The hitters have the task of hitting the opponents with the racing cars and blocking the racing cars destined to hit their teammates. The seeker must take the snitch.
