Bringing Quidditch to Muggles in the fantastic Chicago city!!

Started in Middlebury, Chicago's Quidditch team will bring the game to the community!

Anyone 18 or older can join in this full-contact, fun mix of rugby, tag and dodgeball!

How to play? Chasers: (3 per team) These players handle the quaffle and attempt to rack up points by scoring through the hoops. Beater: (2 per team) These players use bludgers (dodgeballs) to hit other players. When hit, the player must run back to their team's hoops before they can reenter the game. Keeper: (1 per team) These players guard the hoops. Seeker: (1 per team) These players chase after the snitch. "Catching" the snitch ends the game. Snitch: (1 person. No team affiliation) This person is allowed to run outside the pitch, remove players from their brooms, hide, dodge, and climb trees to avoid capture. "Catching" the snitch means catching the tennis ball held in a sock attached to the snitch's shorts (think flag football).

Referee & Cheerleader: Yep, you know.
