The Repelling Spell (incantation unknown) was a charm that repels small objects from escaping.[1]


It was often used during "Cuaditch" (13th century-Quidditch) matches by members of the crowd to stop Golden Snidgets from escaping past the borders of the Quidditch pitch.[1]

This spell was also among the only methods of preventing owls from reaching a witch or wizard, along with Disguising Spells and Masking Spells.[2]
