ARE THERE SIMPLIFIED RULES?

Yes! Below are some simplified rules. A simplified version/quick start guide can also be found clicking here. You can also view our primer on quidditch by clicking here.

  • All players on the pitch (except the snitch) must be holding a broomstick between their legs whenever they are playing. 

  • Only keepers and chasers can touch the quaffle.

  • Only beaters can touch the bludgers.

  • Only the seeker can catch the snitch.

  • The snitch is not released until a few minutes into gameplay.

  • Keepers can play like a chaser but also need to remember to guard the hoops.

  • If you are beat/hit with a bludger, you must drop whatever you are holding, get off of your broom, run back to the hoops, and tag the hoops before getting back in the game.

  • The quaffle is worth 10 points and the snitch is worth 30 points. Once a team catches the snitch, the game is over.
