Many quidditch events happen that do not require you to belong to a team, or even have any experience at all!
The most common of these events is the fantasy tournament. In these tournaments, people sign up and pay online, and then are drafted onto teams prior to the day of the event. Everyone comes wearing a shirt of the color of the team that drafted them, and then play some quidditch! It’s an awesome way to meet new people and an excellent way to get to know the game better.
