Quidditch was a wizarding sport played on broomsticks. The teams consisted of seven players competing to score the higher number of points, either by the Chasers (three on each team) scoring goals by throwing a Quaffle through a hoop or by the Seekers (one on each team) catching the Golden Snitch - at which point the game ended. Although the Snitch was worth 150 points, a game could be won the team who did not catch the Snitch if enough goals were scored before it was caught. Chasers and Seekers also had to avoid being hit by Bludgers, hard iron balls that were directed across the pitch by Beaters (two on each team). The final position is the Keeper, who would defend their team's hoops from opposing Chasers. Games were usually played by mixed teams, although the Holyhead Harpies were an all-female professional team.
