(To play the game, opposing teams of seven have to put ‘quaffles’ into hoops while avoiding dodgeballs known as ‘bludgers’. The flying ‘snitch’ is played by a neutral player dressed in yellow with a tennis ball in their waistband. In the absence of flying broomsticks, players have to run around with sticks or brooms between their legs.
I don’t want to pour scorn on the idea, but, flying through the sky chasing a magical ball = cool. Running around a muddy field, chasing someone with a tennis ball stuck in their knicker elastic, with a broom between your legs = not so cool.)
