The Training Grounds were a part of the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The grounds were flat, short-cut grassy areas and were located near the Herbology greenhouses. It was overlooked by the Training Grounds Tower and the Defence Against the Dark Arts Tower.[1]


During the 19th century, the grounds had a large, circular path surrounding a fountain.[3]

During the 1980s, Flying lessons taught by Madam Rolanda Hooch took place on the Training Grounds.[4][5][6] Jacob's sibling and William Weasley would also often practise defensive spells on training dummies on the Training Grounds.[7][8] Patricia Rakepick also taught them how to cast the Shield Charm on the Training Grounds in 1987 in a private lesson.[9] Rakepick also taught them and a select group of other students the Blasting Curse on the Training Grounds using Mechanical Death Eaters while training them to be potential Curse-Breakers.[10]

During the 1996–1997 school year, the Hufflepuff Duelling Club held its practices in the Training Grounds.[2] A secret room was located near the grounds.[11]
