For those of us who read the Harry Potter series, we know that Quidditch is a wizard sport invented by J.K. Rowling and played by the book's main characters. This make-believe wizard sport has inspired the creation of the Intercollegiate Quidditch Association, which involves players from such Ivy League universities as Harvard running around on brooms and trying to score points while wearing capes.

The Intercollegiate Quidditch Association has grown to include countries from all over the world, with over two hundred participating teams.
