Players emphasize inclusiveness and diversity of Syracuse Quidditch, which they hope will be SU's next official club sport.

Every Sunday at Syracuse University since spring 2009, the field by the Women’s Building becomes a magical place.

Players line up across the field from each other in front of three hoops made from PVC pipe and duct tape to play Quidditch, a sport popularized by the Harry Potter franchise.

“Muggle Quidditch is mixture of dodge ball, a little rugby, soccer and also tag,” said player Bonnie Kong. “It’s a great game to join because it combines so many sports.”
