History of Quidditch

    Centuries ago, a great desire to fly begin to take hold of witches and wizards. But there is no such spell that allows a person to fly unaided in human form. So something would have to be bewitched to fly....  This was the beginning of the flying broomstick, which would lead to several aerial games including Stitchstock, Aingingein, Creaothceann, Shuntbumps, and Swivenhodge. But none of these games could compare with the game Quidditch, which over several hundred years developed into the sport we know today, and became the most popular sport in the wizarding world.
