Overview:  Quidditch is the only co-ed contact sport offered at Harvard and features a unique mix of elements from rugby, dodgeball, and handball. A quidditch team is made up of seven athletes who play with brooms between their legs at all times. While the game can appear chaotic to the casual observer, once familiar with the basic rules, quidditch is an exciting sport to watch and an even more exciting sport to play. An overview of the rules can be viewed here: http://iqaquidditch.com/about/rules.Our team was founded by Stacy Rush and Alana Biden in 2009, and is one of 1000 teams worldwide, 600 of which are in the United States. We generally hold practices twice a week and have regularly scheduled games as part of the Massachusetts Quidditch Conference, which includes Tufts, BU, Emerson, and Q.C. Boston. At the most recent Northeast Regional Championships we placed 9th in the region, qualifying for this year's World Cup in South Carolina on April 5-6th. We have practice on Tuesdays from 4-5 pm and on Saturdays from 11-12:30 in the MAC Quad each week, and encourage everyone with any level of interest to come by and see what Quidditch is actually like, although remember to wear clothes you don't mind getting a little bit dirty!
