College students from across the Southwest are to be in Tulsa this weekend to compete in a Quidditch competition.

Students from schools in six states, including the University of Arkansas and Wichita State University, will be in Tulsa to compete in the International Quidditch Association's Southwest Regional Championship.

The full-contact sport has team members mounted on brooms and attempting to score goals by putting the quaffle - similar to a volleyball - through one of three hoops. The sport is inspired by the "Harry Potter" books.

The competition runs Saturday and Sunday at the Mohawk Park Soccer Complex in north Tulsa.
