KISSIMMEE, Fla (NBC/WESH) - A tournament was held this weekend for a sport made famous in the "Harry Potter" series of novels and movies.
Hundreds of people of all ages took part in the Quidditch World Cup in Central Florida.
In "Harry Potter's" magical world, players fly over the field on broomsticks.
This version of Quidditch is played entirely on the ground, but broomsticks are still required.
Organizers say the game is fun and intense.
"A lot of people say it's a combination of rugby, dodgeball and basketball," said tournament director Hannah Lindgren. "Because it is a full-contact sport, so that's the rugby aspect of it. And you can completely full-tackle people."
The International Quidditch Association was founded three years ago.
It has more than 300 active teams that pay dues and take part in matches all over the world.
