    Hi to all Potter fans!

    So, recently, a little group in our cegep (pre-university) started a to form a comity to play Quidditch. And of course, I registered in it ^^!
    Yes, it exist, people play with a lot of balls and a broom between their legs with no flying sadly. And the Golden Snitch (my post XD) is actually a person who can go where-ever he or she wants on the campus (if I understood correctly :p). And there are actually <<serious>> World Cops of this game.

    So I wanted to know if there were any other players in here, and if so, please tell us more about this peculiar game!:guin:

    We actually have a proper Muggle Quidditch team here at St Andrews, with multiple trainings every week and inter-club games.

    Quite a few people play and they say that it can be very fun, although you sometimes get very annoyed at the person playing the snitch.

    Lol this is an actual thing? that's great xD I don't play no, but being the snitch sounds like lots of fun, but you gotta be real quick on your feet.

    When they play here, they start in an area, but don't always specify a maximum distance.

    I was told of snitches who have climbed trees, jumped over barbed wire (from trees), sprinted to the other end of campus, ...
    Another rule is that if a player falls off their broom, they have to return to their starting position, and the snitch is allowed to push seekers of their brooms, so if you're far out, then it can be pretty annoying.

    There's actually a match coming up soon I think, between Glasgow and Edinburgh or something. Our St Andrews team is one of the best in Scotland :D

    I went to watch our Quidditch team play yesterday. We won the first match 90*-0 and lost the second 30-40* (* denotes the team catching the snitch, worth 30 points). The weather was awful but it was great fun and there was some good play.
    It does get quite violent, as tackling is perfectly allowed. I had to help one girl off the pitch and to a sheltered bench because she got shouldered in the neck when trying to tackle someone.

    I imagine it would be quite challenging to sprint while holding the broom between your legs. Good on them for having fun :)

    I really want to see a game, but I never know where to go. Is there a website with scrimmages in the US?
