Rules

For the 2017 season, starting on January 1 and ending December 31, Quidditch Australia will use the International Quidditch Association Official Rulebook as its rules of play. However, QA has adopted two amendments that deviate from IQA Rulebook as outlined below. These deviations were made in the best interests of Australia quidditch.

IQA Rulebook 2016-2018

QA Rulebook Amendments

For players seeking a basic guide to the rules for the purpose of understanding how to play, an abridged version of the rulebook has been written.
