London, May 3 (ANI): Quidditch, a fictional sport developed by J.K. Rowling for the Harry Potter book series, has now been adapted from the book and is being played in reality, minus the flying.

The latest fascination is sweeping students of US universities, with more than 400 teams following the game and the rules as mentioned in the Harry Potter book series, reports The Sun.

Players have to keep to their sticks at all times and are penalised with yellow or red wands for foul play.

But there is no flying like there was in the book. The players remain on the ground.niversities of UK are also gearing up for the latest fad.

"We're bringing it home," 18-year-old Jack Williams, of Cambridge's fledgling team, said. (ANI)
