Queerditch Marsh Quidditch History

United Kingdom
"Tuesday. Hot. That lot from across the marsh have been at it again. Playing a stupid game on their broomsticks. A big leather ball landed in my cabbages." - Gertie Keddle, 11th Century (QA3).

Eight hundred years ago, a group of witches and wizards used an damp stretch of nettle-filled ground called Queerditch Marsh as a place to play a new game they had invented. This game involved broomsticks and a "big leather ball." Soon they added a couple of heavy rocks, bewitched to try to knock players off their brooms. The whole business was observed by a witch named Gertie Keddle who wrote about what she saw, in badly spelled Saxon, in her diary.

Over the centuries that followed, the sport evolved and changed, and though the spelling of its name changed, it was always a homage to its birthplace. Eventually "Queerditch" became "Quidditch" and all but took over the wizarding world (QA3, QA6). Queerditch Marsh itself has since been made Unplottable (RC), and Gertie Keddle's diary is now in the Museum of Quidditch in London (QA3).
