How many of you here have heard of Muggle Quidditch?  It’s an actual, ground-based sport based on the popular Wizarding sport of Quidditch, see.  There are a couple key differences, one being that the Snitch is a person, a neutral third party associated with neither team, and also, the Bludgers can’t move on their own, they can only be whacked around by the Beaters, but Chasers have to drop the Quaffle when struck and keep down for the count of 10.  Some versions actually require you to carry a broom around between your legs, but the version I play at my school doesn’t.  (I go to the New School, on Jamesville Road, see, and we have two Quidditch teams, because they only play each other.)  And another key difference:  To improve the game balance, the Snitch is only worth 30 points.  (In case you don’t know, getting the Quaffle through one of the other team’s hoops is 10 points.)  So anyway, feel free to share any experiences, anecdotes, or information about Quidditch in the comments section.  Signing out, Zerbie.

    Try a google image search for “muggle quidditch.” If you’re asking specifically for pictures of the New School’s Muggle Quidditch, then, I don’t believe so, though one of the teachers may have taken a photograph, I’m not sure.
