A volleyball is used to score goals by
throwing or kicking it into the hoops. The
keepers and chasers are the only ones
allowed to use this ball. Chasers can use a
quaffe to block incoming bludgers.
These balls are used by beaters to set back
other players. When a player is hit with a
bludger, he must drop any ball he is hold-
ing, retum to his side and touch one of his
goalposts before re-entering play.
