Gryffindor Seeker Harry Potter beating back a Bludger, the Beaters job

" [...] you have two Beaters on each team — it's their job to protect their side from the Bludgers and try and knock them towards the other team."
Oliver Wood[src]

Beater is a position in the Wizarding sport of Quidditch. There are two Beaters on every Quidditch team, and they are the only players on the pitch who have bats. Their job is to keep the Bludgers away from their team and at the same time try and aim the Bludgers towards the opposite team.

History of the BeaterEdit

Beaters have probably existed in the game of Quidditch since the introduction of the Bludger. Beaters are not meant to be goal scorers, and there is no indication that any Beater has ever handled the Quaffle during gameplay.

TraitsEdit

Beaters need to be well built, having considerable physical strength in their arms since they are charged with hitting the Bludgers throughout the whole match. This generally leads to wizards rather than witches playing in this position. However, the famous Captain of the Holyhead Harpies, Gwenog Jones, is a notable exception. Beaters also need to have good balance, as they are, at times, required to take both hands off their broomstick.
