Colleges are Organizing Quidditch Teams [VIDEO]
Anyone up for a game of Quidditch? If you are familiar with Harry Potter you know what I’m talking about.
Quidditch is a so-called sport that has become ” all the rage” on colleges everywhere. Quidditch is a game played while riding “broomstick,” like the witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series. Yes, I am serious!
Colleges such as Harvard, Rice, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and more are now organizing Quidditch teams. The game is not a sanctioned sport at the colleges, but there is an actual International Quidditch Association.
Here’st the actual definition of Quidditch from Wikipedia:
Quidditch is a fictional sport created by British author J. K. Rowling for the Harry Potter series of novels. It is described as an extremely rough but very popular semi-contact sport, played by wizards and witches around the world. Matches are played between two teams of seven players riding flying broomsticks, using four balls and six elevated ring-shaped goals three on each side of the Quidditch pitch (field). In the Harry Potter universe, Quidditch holds a fervent following similar to the position that association football holds as a globally popular sport.
This is Quidditch for Muggles (that’s human in witch and wizard talk!)
