Our 1st Quidditch Practice

After being on set for The Guild all day I was extremely tired but man I have been so looking forward to tonight... Tonight was our very first Quidditch practice for the new LA community Quidditch team The Hollywood Harpies.  Since it was mother's day we didn't have a big turn out, only six showed up but man did we have a great time. We practice throwing and catching one handed to a partner, we played a little dodgeball one handed, and dodgeball on brooms. We practice throwing balls into hoops and blocking balls (keeping).

I had the time of my life, I was in my element. I've have been wanting to play Quidditch since I found out that they played Muggle Quidditch. I played a bit aggressive, but when watching the Western Cup this sport is full contact. But everyone seemed to like how I was playing.

I think I'm the oldest one in the group and man am I so out of shape. I could last about five minutes before needing a break. I know it will get easier and easier as I continue to work out. I think this is going to be great for helping me lose weight. We practiced for about an hour and half and afterwards, though exhausted and sore, I was on a high... I think this is just want I needed to release some of this stress. Can't wait for our next practice. If anyone in the LA area wants to join me please let me know... it's tons of fun.

  1. That sounds like so much fun! There is a team at my university, but I have no time to join.
