Event description

Description

SAVE THE DATE: January 22 - 27, 2018

Calling all adults age 18+!
All Sport One City is a week-long event offering free, no-pressure introductory sport and fitness classes!
Registration opens on January 1, noon.

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