    In August, our monthly theme is SPORTS.

    It should be quite easy to list various sports, sports equipment, or sports terms using all the letters from the alphabet. This is such a wide theme that we should have fun and probably go through several rounds (I think).

    Let’s go!

    Because I want more people to jump in the game, I will ask to NOT post two consecutive answers (unless there is a 24-hour period without an answer since it could mean we are stuck)

    Q – Quidditch (Quadball)
    When J.K Rowling invented the sport of Quidditch for her Harry Potter books, she would not have imagined that a few years later it would be played in leagues all around the world. In our world, muggles can join in this game involving a quaffle, broomsticks, hoops, bludgers and the coveted golden snitch.
