Anything to Do with Quidditch

Quidditch - Wizard sport similar to soccer, but played in the air on broomsticks. Seven players on each team; three Chasers, One Keeper, Two Beaters and one Seeker. They use three different balls - a Quaffle, red soccer sized ball; two bludger balls (black); the Golden Snitch - a tiny, winged, walnut-sized ball that the Seeker has to catch. Points are earned each time the ball goes through the hoop; the catching of the Golden Snitch signals the end of a game. And gives the team that caught the Snitch gets 150 points.
