We at Windmill know how important sleep is. We also know how illusive it can be during the tournament. In the spirit of helping you with your Amsterdam housing needs before, during, and after the tournament, we're pleased to announce our new partner Wimdu! Offering peer-to-peer property rental, Wimdu helps you find that all important sleeping place in Amsterdam (or one of their 1999 other cities).

By March 7th all of the teams selected will be announced on the website, but in the meantime keep checking your old fashioned mailboxes.

You might find the love of your life, you might turn a straight person gay, or you might take someone’s v-card. These are some true stories of lovers at Windmill.
Windmill is for lovers. Lovers of luscious green pitches that stretch as far as the eye can see. Lovers of tasty meals. Lover of cheap beer (and bartenders who may or may not have enjoyed a few themselves). Lovers of volunteers with seemingly bottomless stores of energy and generosity. Lovers of sweet tunes. Lovers of high level competition. Lovers of breathtaking finals and the roar of a crowd of ...
On Saturday 3 January the Dutch Frisbee Association (NFB) hosted their first gala to celebrate 35 years of the Dutch Frisbee Association existing, and to acknowledge the accomplishments made by various members of the Dutch Frisbee community in 2014.
We are elated to announce that Windmill was awarded with the tournament of the year award, and we thank you all for your support. This year we again intend to provide a top tournament filled with quality ultimate and action-packed entertainment. Be sure to register your team on the 10th of January!
We’d also like to congratulate the other award ...
We are thrilled to report that Five Ultimate will be returning to Windmill once again as Windmill’s official merchandiser. As always, the logo will remain a surprise for the tournament itself, but along the way we will announce some pretty amazing stuff Five Ultimate and Windmill is cooking up!

2015 promises to be a big year for the Windmill and to properly usher in the new year we're hosting a festivus for the rest of us, a New Year's Borrel, where we will not only celebrate what is to come, we will also be opening up the website for team bids. So if you enjoy drinks, music, and socializing -windmill style- and you can count down backwards from 10, join us at the Windmill Borrel. The borrel begins at 15:30 at the Hangout so we can celebrate the opening of registration at 16:00!
In September we announced that Windmill would be returning again this June to the grassy fields of Sportspark de Eendracht in Amsterdam. Almost immediately after posting this announcement, the Windmill crew had a series of messages wondering why Windmill is no longer followed by the word Windup on our webpage, Facebook and Twitter account.
Windmill has undergone a rebranding for two reasons one pragmatic—and probably of little interest to read—and the other symbolic, which has more impact for you, your team, and your Windmill experience.
AND HERE’S WHERE WE HOPE TO EXPLAIN!
Let’s start with the ...
The Windmill family is devastated to inform you of the passing of one of our crew members on Wednesday of this week. Aljaž Gaberšek was a dedicated volunteer and crew member of the Windmill for multiple years who spread his enthusiasm, quirkiness, and fun to those around him on the Windmill crew and to players at the tournament. We will remember Aljaž for the passions he had in life: ultimate, his friends, and the environment; and we hope to continually take care of these aspects both at our tournament and in our lives.
His memorial ceremony will take place Tuesday ...
