Quidditch

Harry and the Weasley twins get a lifetime ban after the first Quidditch match of the season

"And you see now, don't you, Minerva, how right I was in attempting to stop the Gryffindor team re-forming? Dreadful tempers ... So I really think I will have to ban these two from playing Quidditch ever again."
-- Dolores Umbridge (OP19)

Harry and the Weasley twins get a lifetime ban after the first Quidditch match of the season

The Gryffindor and Slytherin teams play their first match of the 1995-96 season. The Slytherin supporters have invented a song, “Weasley is Our King“, to unnerve Ron, who promptly falls apart during the match. However, the Gryffindor team still win when Harry beats Draco Malfoy to the Snitch (OP19).

After the match, tempers boil over. Harry goes after Malfoy for taunting him and he, along with Fred and George Weasley, is banned from playing again by Professor Umbridge (OP19).
