Post Woohoo! Welcome to the Quidditch DCT for September 2nd!

(No official September DCT list has been posted yet, so if I'm not allowed to post this yet I'll ask a mod to close the thread).

Welcome to the Quidditch DCT for September 2nd!
(banner coming soon)

Quidditch is the main wizarding sport featured in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books.
It involves two teams of seven players each on broomsticks, trying to score as many points as possible.
The roles in each team are divided as follows:
3 Chasers - They control the direction of the Quaffle and try to score goals by throwing it through a goal hoop.
2 Beaters - They have to try and hit the Bludgers away from their own team, towards the other team, to cause distraction to the opposing side.
1 Keeper - The Keeper's job is to defend the Quaffle from going into any of the goal hoops.
1 Seeker - While all this is happening, the Seeker has to try and find the golden Snitch which is flying through the whole mid-air pitch throughout the game. When the Seeker manages to find and hold onto the Snitch, their team gets 150 points, the game finishes, and as a result of the high number of points, this team usually wins.

There are four balls in Quidditch:
Quaffle - The 'goal-scoring' ball. It is red, made of leather and twelve inches in diameter.
Bludgers (two of these are used per game) - Used by Beaters to knock people off their brooms (the other team of course). They are black and ten inches in diameter, and are bewitched to fly on their own.
Golden Snitch - When this is caught, the game ends. The Snitch is gold with silver wings, and about the size of a walnut. It can fly on its own.

Quidditch Pitches:
Quidditch pitches are typically in the shape of an oval, five-hundred feet long and one-hundred eighty feet wide, with a small central circle of approximately two feet in diameter, from which all the balls were released at the start of the game. At each end there are three hooped goal posts of different heights, surrounded by a scoring area. As Quidditch is an aerial sport, Quidditch pitches usually feature spectator seating at high vantage points, whether in towers (such as at Hogwarts) or in a fully-encircling platform style (such as the British stadium that held the 1994 Quidditch World Cup).

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible. A Quaffle thrown through a goal hoop is ten points, and the team with the Golden Snitch at the end is worth 150 points. The team with the most points at the end, regardless of whether they have caught the Snitch or not, is the winner.

Rules of Quidditch (credit to Harry Potter Wiki):

The worldwide popularity and playing of the game of Quidditch is closely monitored and analysed by International Confederation of Wizards' Quidditch.

In 1750, the Department of Magical Games and Sports set down official rules for the game of Quidditch.
Players must not stray over the boundary lines of the pitch, although they may fly as high as desired. The Quaffle must be surrendered to the opposition if any player leaves the boundary (it is unknown what the penalty is if a player on defence leaves the pitch).
"Time out" may be called at any time by the Captain of a team. Time out may be extended to two hours if a game has already lasted for more than twelve hours. Failure to return to the pitch after this time will lead to the team being disqualified.
Penalties can be awarded to teams by the referee. A single Chaser may take the penalty by flying from the central circle towards the scoring area. The opposing team's Keeper may attempt to stop the shot being scored, but all other players must not interfere (it is unknown if the Seeker may still attempt to catch the Snitch while a penalty is being attempted).
Contact is allowed, but a player may not seize hold of another player's broomstick or any part of their anatomy.
No substitution of players is allowed throughout the game, even if a player is too injured or tired to continue to play. (Note: According to Goblet of Fire, during the Quidditch World Cup, at some point it lasted for days, and the players had to be switched out so that they could get some sleep).
Players may take their wands onto the pitch, but they must not be used on or against any players, any players' broomsticks, the referee, any of the four balls, or the spectators.
A game of Quidditch will only end once the Golden Snitch has been caught, or at the mutual consent of both team Captains.
Only the Keeper can block quaffle shots thrown by the opposing team.

At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, each house has its own Quidditch team - Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. There is an annual Quidditch Cup at Hogwarts, where all houses play against each other.
