The sport we offer at Hogwarts:

Quidditch is the most popular sport in the Wizarding World. Originating in the 1000's, it is played all around the world. The sport of Quidditch involves two teams flying on broomsticks around an oval shaped grassy pitch. The teams attempt to score points through three rings by throwing various sized balls. Each player on the team (seven in total) has various tasks to complete, each task having a vast impact on the game.

The name "Quidditch" comes from the term "Queerditch Marsh", the place where the game originated. Spanning over a millennium, the sport of Quidditch has changed a lot to reach its current form. Below is some detailed information on all aspects of Quidditch.

The Team
A Quidditch team consists of seven players. These players include the following:

3 x Chasers

It is the job of the three Chasers to score the teams points. The Chasers have to handle the Quaffle (the largest ball) and throw it through the hoops. Each 'hoop' scored gives the team in possession 10 points.

2 x Beaters
It is the job of the two Beaters to protect their team from the two Bludgers, the powerful balls which fly around the pitch, attempting to knock players of their brooms. The Beaters have a club (similar to a baseball bat) which they use to knock the Bludger off course. (Or into the path of opponent's team.)

1 x Keeper
It is the job of the Keeper to protect the team's goal. The job is somewhat like a soccer goalkeeper. The Keeper uses no more than his or her hands, and is required to perform tricky manoeuvres on his or her broom in order to keep the hoops protected.

1 x Seeker
The job of the Seeker is considered the most important job of all. The Seeker is required to catch the Golden Snitch, a small, golden, walnut sized ball. The Snitch earns the team 150 points and stops the match. A game of Quidditch only ends when the Golden Snitch is caught.


The Balls
A Quidditch match is played with four balls. Each ball is different in all aspects and they are all equally important in the game play.

1 x Quaffle

The Quaffle is about the size of a football and is scarlet red. It is built with a Gripping Charm in order to help players catch it. It is also fitted with a charm that reduces its speed if it falls. After all, if it was dropped without the charm, it wall fall directly to the ground.

2 x Bludgers

The Bludgers are smaller than the Quaffle and are heavy and made of iron. They target players, attempting to knock them off their brooms. The Bludgers have to be restrained before a Quidditch match because they would attack anyone in their range.

1 x Golden Snitch

The Golden Snitch is considered the most important ball because it gives the team in its possession 150 points. It is small (about the size of a walnut) and has two wings. It rapidly circles the pitch and is extremely difficult to spot. The game of Quidditch only ends when the Golden Snitch is caught.


Other Equipment
Goal Posts

Six in all, these fifty foot-high structures are the main way of scoring in Quidditch. Each time a Quaffle is thrown through one of the hoops, ten points is earned. There are three on each end of the field, guarded by the team Keeper.

Clubs

The Beaters use these large, heavy clubs to knock the Bludgers toward opposing players. They are wooden and shaped somewhat like a baseball bat.

Broomsticks

Broomsticks are one of the most important aspects of Quidditch. Each and every player cares for his or her broomstick in order to get it to perform to its best. There are a few lines of brooms, most constantly being outdated. Most brooms are fairly pricey, some more than others.

Oh and also we have exciting news! This year will be hosting the Triwizard Tournament!

The Triwizard Tournament was a magical contest held between the three largest wizarding schools of Europe: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Durmstrang Institute, and the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. The first Tournament was held in approximately 1294, with each of the three schools being represented by one Champion apiece. Selected Champions compete in three tasks designed to test magical ability, intelligence and courage, traditionally judged by the Headmasters or Headmistresses of the competing schools. Champions compete for the honour and glory of winning the Tournament, and the prize for the victor is the Triwizard Cup and a monetary prize.

Each competing school is allowed one Champion to represent them during the Tournament. Students wishing to participate write their names and the school they attend on a piece of parchment, and enter it into the Goblet of Fire. The Goblet is an impartial judge, and selects what it considers to be the best student from each school. At the appointed time, the Goblet ejects the names, making each selected student the official Champion for their school. Each selected Champion is then bound by a magical contract to see the Tournament through to the end.

Each Tournament consists of three tasks designed to test the Champion's courage, intelligence, resourcefulness, and magical ability. These tasks are exceedingly dangerous and differ from year to year.

Champions receive marks in each of the tasks from a panel of judges, usually made up of the headmasters or headmistresses of the competing schools.

Each Champion is supposed to stand alone during the Tournament, receiving no outside help from anyone, including friends and teachers. Cheating is frowned upon, though it has been known to take place several times during the history of the Tournament, and some people believe it to be a traditional part of the event.

The Yule Ball, held on Christmas Day night, is a traditional part of the Tournament. The Ball usually includes a feast, and a formal dance where the Champions and their partners lead the host school in dancing. Students old enough to attend are allowed to bring a friend. Students that are too young to attend may attend if invited by a student old enough to attend the ball.

Re: Hogwarts: Triwizard Games

May I reserve student 4?

Re: Hogwarts: Triwizard Games

So.....much......potterness!!!! Hey, Sneakyrio's the username and I stumbled upon your lovely rp here and decided to throw my name in the proverbial Goblet and try my hand at it. Just submitted Antony and I really hope you like him. I put a lot of hard work and time into him and I hope you like him as much as I do. Thanks for your time.

Re: Hogwarts: Triwizard Games

Oh okay- sounds cool. I'll try and join in if that's the case.

Re: Hogwarts: Triwizard Games

@lovechanningforever Well each character will do there task and just not pay attention to anyone else like the typical Triwizard Tournament, they will go on trying to win. Once they go and do there task they will skip there part where they finish like in a race or if it is a task where you are alone (example the gloden egg you got from fighting the dragon in Harry Potter) then you will just finish. I will decide who discribed it the best, in the most detail with the most creative ideas

Re: Hogwarts: Triwizard Games

Ohhh I would love to join in- few questions though. How are you going to incorporate the tournament into RP? And how will you determine which character would win in a particular task? I mean all of us might RP that our character will be able to survive and do their best- but how and who will determine who will be the winner?
