MSU Intramurals will be holding quidditch games tonight in the north gym of the Fitness Center. You can register online at www.imleagues.com/Default.aspx. Registration is not necessary for participation, but unregistered players will, in effect, have to register the day of the event. Quidditch, the otherworldly game made famous by the Harry Potter novel series, is coming to MSU with alterations give every intramural athlete the chance to play on the pitch just as Harry did. To break it down to it's basics, quidditch is played by two teams of 7 players who are trying to outscore the other team. Each team defends 3 hoops or or goals that designated opposing players attempt to advance a football through. Points are scored when the football travels through any of the three hoops. To prevent the football from advancing, two players from each team are strictly designated to use dodgeballs to hit opposing players. Once hit with a dodgeball, a player must return to their own goals before resuming play. At a certain point during the game a "snitch" is released onto the field, and a "seeker" from each team will attempt to run it down and capture it for more points! Quidditch at MSU is for everyone, because what would witches and wizards do with all the ChampChange you'll get for playing?! See you on the pitch!
