    Still from the movie

    A Quidditch game that was inspired by the novels British writer JK Rowling about Harry Potter, will officially be renamed the quadball. This was announced by the International Quidditch Federation (IQA).

    The new name will reflect the number of balls used in the game and the number of playing positions. So, in this game, as in book Quidditch, quaffle balls, two bludgers and a snitch are used, and players play the roles of hunters, beaters, goalkeepers and catchers on the field. The game from the Harry Potter books was adapted for real life in 2005.

    The reason for the name change was that the trademark for the word “Quidditch” belongs to the Warner Bros. film studio, as well as criticism of JK Rowling . J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series of books, is often criticized for her stance. LGBTQ+ advocacy groups such as GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign, as well as major cast members from the Harry Potter film series, have criticized her stance, — stated in the organization.
