Their team special move, the Blitzen Ballet, involved a lot of spinning, and played out as follows: Chasers Marat and Mallard passed the quaffle, then Mallard swung across to Chaser Lafarge's broom as Mallard passed the Quaffle to Marat, who scored while the opposing Keeper was distracted.[1]


French Stadium

The French Quidditch Stadium resembled the Palace of Versailles, with an elaborate, symmetrical hedge maze and opulent gardens covering the field.[1]
