Hogwarts Legacy Summoner’s Court Match 3 is the third side quest in a series of five, in which you must defeat Grace Pinch-Smedley in a Summoner’s Court minigame. You might remember Grace Pinch-Smedley from The Lost Astrolabe Side Quest, where you dived into the lake and retrieved the Pinch-Smedley astrolabe.
Winning the third round of Summoner’s Court will gain you 180 XP and unlock the Summoner’s Court Match 4 Side Quest. To start the Summoner’s Court Match 3, you’ll have to finish the previous two matches, Summoner’s Court Match 1 and Summoner’s Court Match 2.
It is also necessary to progress the main story until you reach and finish the second trial during Charles Rookwood’s Trial Main Quest. Additionally, you need to be at least Level 10 in Hogwarts Legacy. Once you meet all the abovementioned requirements, fast-travel to the Flying Class Lawn Floo Flame and look for Grace Pinch-Smedley on the court board.

How To Win Summoner’s Court Match 3 in Hogwarts Legacy
The third round of Summoner’s Court features a new board with four blocks with slopes placed diagonally on the board. The key here is that the top of these blocks is worth 100 points, so you’ll have to try to land the balls right on top of them.
Stand in front of the second block from the left for the ball on the far left. Cast Accio and hold until the ball reaches the very start of the slope, then let go. If you time it right, the ball should stop on top of the block.
Use this strategy with the other two balls, standing in front of the blocks they line up with and attempting to land them on top of the blocks. If not, another winning strategy is to pull it to the very top of the slope and release it, causing it to fall over and land in the green or blue section.
This way, you will still gain more points going over the blocks rather than falling behind in the lower points sections. That’s our winning strategy for Summoner’s Court Match 3 Side Quest in Hogwarts Legacy. If you have a better one, let us hear it in the comments section below.
