SU's unofficial Quidditch team gives students something to talk about

You don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to enjoy playing Quidditch. At least, that’s what Syracuse University students say about the sport sweeping the nation. Originally started as a human adaptation of the fictional wizard sport in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, Quidditch has become a fast-growing sport at colleges throughout the country.

At SU, both Potter groupies and newbies alike are welcome to join the unofficial team, which plays at the field near the Women's Building every Sunday.Those expecting magic wands and flying broomsticks might be surprised.
