"Starters on." - Mario Nasta
New to quidditch? This video will show you the basics.
We are considered both a team and a club, which means members are welcome to choose the intensity with which they play.
Because we are a team, we hold multiple practices every week and consider quidditch a real sport. Our Tournament Team is made up of the members who are most committed to attending practices and competing in tournaments, which is the competitive side of the sport. Tournament Team members are required to attend at least three practices per week.
Because we are also a club, any RPI student who wants to play quidditch is welcome to join us for any and all practices, no prior experience required (though a basic understanding of the rules would certainly help). Members who aren't on the Tournament Team attend practices and play purely for fun, no matter their athletic abilities or broom-handling skills. We encourage anyone who is interested in trying their hand at playing quidditch to join us!
We currently follow US Quidditch Rulebook 8. Because quidditch is a relatively new sport, the rulebook is updated often as officials try to iron out every possible detail.
Check our calendar and come to a practice! We always welcome newcomers.
You can check out this handy map to see where we usually hold our practices.

Weekends! We hold fun scrimmages on the weekend practices and more skill-focused drills on weekday practices.
Community members are welcome to practice with us, however we allow a maximum of three community members to be a part of our Tournament Team.
