Budding sports players can have a go at throwing a bludger and catching a snitch at a quidditch team try-out.

The Norwich Nifflers, based at the University of East Anglia, are recruiting more players for their upcoming tournament season.

Based on the sport made famous by J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, competitors play with a broom between their legs.

It also draws on aspects of rugby and dodgeball.

Anyone interested in joining the Norwich Nifflers can take part in taster sessions at Earlham Park on Sunday, October 1 and Wednesday, October 4, from 1-3pm.

Students and non-students can participate.

Quidditch, a mixed gender sport, is enjoyed by more than 800 people and 40 teams in the UK.

A match consists of two teams of seven made up of a keeper, three chasers, two beaters and a seeker. Search the Norwich Nifflers on Facebook for details.
