The sport of quidditch that is played in the Muggle world is vastly different from Harry Potter's game and may just surprise you with how thrilling it is to play.

Quidditch is a mixed-gender sport with two teams of seven players (3 chasers, 2 beaters, 1 keeper, and 1 seeker) each mounted on broomsticks, using three different kinds of balls and playing four different positions. It fuses elements of rugby, dodgeball, wrestling, basketball, and even more sports.

There may be no flying, but lots of strategy, tackling and athleticism.

This makes the sport seem rather chaotic to a casual observer, but once you're familiar with the basic rules quidditch is an exciting sport to watch and even more exciting to play.

The Calgary Quidditch Club works to expand the reach of quidditch to as many people as possible and get people involved in the fun and unique sport.
