The Piscataway Library will be hosting a game of muggle quidditch for children in grades 4 to 8 on Friday, October 11 at Piscataway’s Quibbletown Park on Fairview Ave. near the baseball fields.

What is quidditch?
Quidditch is a competitive sport in the Wizarding World of the Harry Potter universe, featured in the series of novels and movies. It is a very popular semi-contact sport, played by wizards and witches. In the Wizarding World of the Harry Potter universe, Quidditch has a fervent fan following.

What does the game entail? Can people play even if they don’t know the rules?
Quidditch is a semi-contact sport with a unique mix of elements from rugby, dodgeball, and tag. Matches are played between two teams of seven players riding broomsticks, using four balls: a Quaffle, two Bludgers, and a Golden Snitch. Bludgers are very lightweight foam balls used to tag people out of play for a brief period of time, quaffles are used for scoring, and capturing the snitch can win a team the entire game. Six ring-shaped goals are situated atop poles of different heights, three on each side of the field.
