And for all you Potterheads out there, J. Rowling may have found your favorite event to tune in to. It's called points race, which is essentially a cycling race that takes place on an indoor track. It's not the easiest thing to understand, but there's definitely never a dull moment in the sport. So how does this align with Quidditch? Instead of brooms and the golden snitch, the event consists of a large number of riders attempting to overtake one another simultaneously on the track.

Quidditch might be a magical sport, but, as of today, it has entered the real world in a very official capacity. Initially conceived by the legendary author of the Harry Potter series, J. Rowling, the word references the most popular sport in the wizarding world, played by the namesake character himself at Hogwarts. Muggles we may be, but the Oxford Dictionary website has announced that the word "Quidditch" has been inducted into the authority on all things English language. In other words, it is now more fact than fiction.
Regular physical activity for kids helps improve strength and endurance, reduces stress and anxiety, boosts self-esteem, and helps improve overall health. Our sport is a great way to encourage kids to get active, build teamwork skills, and to make lasting friendships. Quidditch is a fast-paced, contact sport created in and played in over 40 countries. A quidditch team consists of up to 21 athletes with seven players per team on the field at any one time.
