What is quidditch?

Quidditch is a fast-paced, full-contact sport born in 2005 that today is played in more than 40 countries. A quidditch team consists of up to 21 athletes with seven players per team on the field at any one time. Each player must keep a broom between their legs at all times.

Quidditch is an inclusive sport that does not accept any kind of discrimination. All quidditch athletes have the right to define how they identify and it is this stated gender that is recognized on pitch. Many players have found, for the first time, a team sport that recognizes them as they are. The ‘four maximum’ rule of quidditch states that there may be no more than four players of the same gender on pitch at one time, ensuring the sport is inclusive to all genders and that gender diversity is always maintained on the field of play.
