The Quidditch Pitch is used for playing Quidditch matches. Hogwart's Quidditch pitch is 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. At each end there are three hooped goal posts of different heights, surrounded by a scoring area.

Quidditch Balls
Quaffle- Score points by throwing the Quaffle threw the opposing team's goals.
Bludgers (2)- Their purpose in the game is to be an obstacle: they fly around attempting to hit players off their brooms indiscriminately.
Golden Snitch- The seeker who catches the Snitch scores 150 points, and strictly speaking, only the capture of the Snitch will end the game.

Positions and Players

Captain-Helps team practice and can play any of the four roles.
Beaters-Armed with wooden clubs that are similar to, but shorter than, baseball bats. They are tasked with protecting their team-mates from the Bludgers by knocking these balls off course or towards opponents.
Chasers-They progress up and down the pitch passing the Quaffle by hand amongst themselves while keeping it away from the other team, in an attempt to score goals by throwing it through one of their opponent's three goal hoops.
Seeker-The lightest member of the team and equipped with the fastest broom. The seeker is in charge for searching the pitch for, chasing down and eventually capturing, the elusive Golden Snitch. Seekers are the only players permitted to touch the Snitch. The seekers are usually small, agile, and stealthy.
Keeper-Protects the three goal hoops, in much the same way as a goalkeeper in football (soccer).

Rules
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, unless there are reserve players present.
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

Fouls
Blagging: No player may seize any part of an opponent's broom to slow or hinder the player
Blatching: No player may fly with the intent to collide
Blurting: No player may lock broom handles with the intent to steer an opponent off course
Bumphing: Beaters must not hit Bludgers towards spectators
Cobbing: Players must not use their elbows against opponents
Flacking: Keepers must not defend the posts from behind by punching Quaffles out of the hoops - goals must be defended from the front
Haversacking: Chasers must not still be in contact with the Quaffle as it passes through a hoop
Quaffle-pocking: Chasers must not tamper with the Quaffle in any way
Snitchnip: No player other than the Seeker may touch or catch the Golden Snitch
Stooging: No more than one Chaser is allowed in the scoring area at any one time

Lorenzo tested out his new broomstick in the Quidditch Pitch area. Though he was grateful for a new broom, Lorenzo was uncomfortable flying with it. He was more used to his old broom after all.

Alec arrived at the Quidditch Pitch. He noticed someone but didnt care. Instead, Alec walked over to where he saw shade, and lied down on the ground, sleeping.

During his test run, Lorenzo started to lose control of his broom. He fell off his broom, but caught the handle with his hand. The broom continued going straight, headed straight for one of the towers that overlooked the field. Lorenzo braced himself for the collision.

Alec heard a crash and sighed. He slept for so long that he didnt bother going back to sleep. He got up and used Ashlynn's wand to apparate. Alec ended up on one of the roof of the castle in the training ground.

Lorenzo crashed, rather violently, and then he dropped down to the ground. He touched his nose: it wasn't broken, but it was bleeding. Lorenzo looked for a spell in his head that could help him at a time like this.

Luke came up and saw his Captain smash into a wall and ran to the otherside of the field,"Captain!" He took out his wand and pointed to his bleeding nose,"Episkey."

"Thank you, Luke," Lorenzo said. He felt his nose again; it had stopped, though his nose felt bruised.
To Fabian, he explained, "Broom accident. I was testing my new broom out then lost control."

Fabian chuckled and teased Lorenzo seeing that he was okay. "A captain for Grffyindor had an accident? But theyre like the all-time champs?!" Fabian chuckled again.

Lorenzo let out a light laugh then stopped after he noticed that laughing hurt. "Well, I'm just not used to this broom yet... I got it a week before coming to Hogwarts. It's supposed to be faster and easier to control..."

"Not so well as expected, but I'll get used to it," Lorenzo said and grinned. "I'll be sure to master this broom in order to beat Hufflepuffs."

Fabian laughed. "Good luck with that, Captain!" Fabian hit Lorenzo's shoulder playfully, not thinking about the pain it could cause him.
