Quality Quidditch Supplies

At present, players can not purchase or otherwise acquire their own broomsticks. However, the presence of Quality Quidditch Supplies in Diagon Alley suggests this may be possible in the future.

From the Story

"Witches and wizards fly on broomsticks, though first-year students are not permitted to own one at Hogwarts. Professor McGonagall arranges an exception to this rule for Harry once she discovers his potential as a Seeker. Wizards also play Quidditch on racing brooms, which are specially developed for this purpose: the Nimbus Two Thousand Harry receives at Hogwarts is the latest of its kind."
