Quidditch has long been a hotly debated topic amongst Harry Potter fans. When you think about it, it doesn’t seem to make much sense.

So, players are trying to catch balls like the quaffle and get them through the hoops at the end of the pitch. They get points for this, but then there’s the Seeker, who just has to grab the Golden Snitch to win the game. In all likelihood, the team who catches the Snitch will also win the game, as it’s very difficult to get more than 150 points ahead of your opponent.

What’s the point of the other players if all that really matters is nabbing the Snitch?

Well, we’re wondering no longer. In a tweet on Tuesday, Rowling (kinda) explained why Quidditch makes “total sense”:

Deep, Jo. Deep.

Not sure that completely clears things up, but it’s better than nothing.
