Quidditch is a growing sport that started in the United States of America in 2005 at Middlebury College by Xander Manshel and Alex Benepe.

The sport of Quidditch is based on JK Rowling’s best-selling Harry Potter series. The sport in the series is played high in the air on flying broomsticks with a golden snitch, quaffle, and  deadly bludgers. The muggle version of Quidditch is played on the ground with brooms that unfortunately don’t fly, a quaffle (volleyball), bludgers (dodge balls) and a golden snitch (person wearing yellow shorts with a tag).
