Quidditch is a game introduced in the Harry Potter books. As the child wizards-in-training in the books could fly on magic brooms, they had developed a game in which they flew their brooms while trying to kick or throw balls through a hoop.
This game has been modified for non-wizards to play on the ground, running with a broom between your legs. Hoops are on the ground to throw or kick a ball through. This game is also called Quidditch on the ground. It started on college campuses in New England and now has national tournaments.
