LAKEVILLE, Ind. (WNDU) - Many have “read all about it,” but this weekend brings a chance to see a real live game of Quidditch being played.

Today at Newton Park in Lakeville, the lines on a soccer field were redrawn to accommodate the sport made famous by Harry Potter.

In this case, Quidditch has been re-named Quadball by the major league group that will crown a north division champion from the six teams that will compete this Saturday and Sunday in Lakeville.

“So, it’s Quadball. It is a; it’s a Harry Potter made-known sport. It’s, oh, in the movie, they’re riding around on broomsticks while here they are doing the same, but they’re not flying; they’re on the ground running around chasing everyone,” said Sharisse Koble with Newton Park. “They have various sizes of balls, different hoops that they’re trying to get things in.”

The event has drawn teams from Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Rochester NY and Toronto.

The games will be open to the public. Day tickets are $10, while a weekend pass is $15.
