Quidditch is the National Wizards game. So I thought I'd teach you the
Ok, there are 4 balls in the game. But there are 3 types.
There is the Quaffle, it's Large and red, about the size of a Soccer ball,
used to score goals.
Then theres the Bludgers: Two in a game, black. Slightly smaller than
a Quaffle, fly around trying to knock players off their brooms. And the
Snitch: Most important Ball in the game. Tiny, the size of a golf ball
with wings, very fast and hard to catch.
Ok, now you know the balls, lets talk about the players
There are 7 to play at any one time for each team. First there are 3 chasers.
They throw the Quaffle to each other and try to score goals. The keeper
Guards the 3 goal-hoops, only one keeper per team. Beaters use a sort
of club and try to knock the bludgers towards the other team, there are
two beaters. And the Seeker, he,or she, flys around and tries to catch
the golden Snitch.
Then there are some basic rules
-There is no time limit in Quidditch, the longest game ever was 3 months,
the game only ends when the Snitch is
-Each goal scored by a chaser is worth 10 points.
- Penalty shots are given when you get fouled, eg. attacking another player.
-Catching the golden Snitch is worth 150 points.
-Wands are allowed on the pitch, but you may not use them against another
player, or their brooms
There are also the good and not so good broomsticks, I have named all
the brooms that there are, according
to Quidditch Through The Ages
-Firebolt (Harry Potter's Broom)
*Nimbus 2000 (Harry Potter's Old Broom)
*Nimbus 2001 (The Slytherin Teams Brooms)
-Silver Arrow (Madam Hooch Learned To Fly On One)
*Cleansweep Five (Weasley Twins Have Them)
-Shooting Star (School Brooms & Ron Weasley has a hand-me-down one)
*Comet Two-Sixty (Cho Chang Has One)
So there you are. The rules, regulations,etc of Quidditch. What will
the future hold for Quidditch?
Will there be better, faster, stronger brooms? Will Harry continue to
play after Hogwarts? Will Ron start playing?
Will the rules change? Who knows what JKR has in store for Quidditch....
