Quidditch club swept off Boston Common

Wizards and witches of Emerson College have been broomed out of Boston Common, for now.

City park officials are barring the school’s quidditch club — which plays a version of the sport popularized by the Harry Potter novels — from using the public space for games and practices until the students obtain a permit. In the meantime, barring some magical intervention, the club and its 200-plus players are searching for a new home in hopes of salvaging the season.
