The beaters hit a ball call the bludger. The bludger is charmed so that it moves on its own and it is the beaters job to keep it away from their teammates.

What is Quidditch and what do you need for it?

Quidditch is a fictional sport played in the fiction novels and movies of Harry Potter. It is played on broomsticks, and each team has 7 players-the seeker, the keeper, 2 beaters, and 3 chasers. The seeker tries to catch a fast little ball called the snitch which will end the game. The beaters keep bludgers away from their players; bludgers are larger balls that chase the players around trying to knock them off their brooms. The chasers use the quaffle, which is a red ball, and they try to score through 3 different hoops, sort of like basketball. The keeper guards the hoops to stop the other team from scoring.
