Hold on to your sorting hats, Quidditch has finally arrived in Cardiff! It's long been a sport associated with wizards, but muggles alike can now get in on the action without the need to fly - broomsticks are required however!
There are seven players on each team: three "chasers," two "beaters," one "keeper" and one "seeker." There is also a "snitch runner," who is not a member of either team. The chasers move the "quaffle" (volleyball) down the field by running or passing it to each other. They score by throwing or kicking the quaffle through the opposing team's goal hoops. Each score is worth 10 points. The beaters throw "bludgers" (dodgeballs) at the opposing team's players to temporarily knock them out of play. The keeper defends their team's hoops and prevents the other team from scoring. The snitch runner wears the "snitch" (a tennis ball) tucked into the back of his shorts. The snitch runner's job is to avoid being caught by the seekers. The snitch runner is the only player who does not "ride" a broom. None of the rules that apply to the other players apply to the snitch runner. The seekers hunt the snitch runner and try to remove the snitch. When a seeker catches the snitch, his team receives an extra 30 points and the game ends. The team with the most points wins.
