Muggle Quidditch

Muggle Quidditch (often just called "Quidditch", but "Muggle" is usually added in front whenever there might be confusion about whether one means the fictional or real sport) is an adaption of the game created by fans to be played in real life where athletes play on the ground with brooms held between their legs. Muggle Quidditch is played internationally and governed by the International Quidditch Association (IQA). Both the sport and the IQA were founded at Middlebury College, in Vermont in the mid-2000s.
