Amsterdam casual pickup
Fields: Grass, cleats allowed
Description: Updated 26-June-2020:
AS OF JULY 1 2020, WE ARE BACK ON FOR WEEKLY WEDNESDAY EVENING FRISBEE AND BBQ IN ERASMUSPARK.
SUNDAY AFTERNOONS ARE STILL SUSPENDED FOR COVID-19.
WE PLAY WITH MODIFIED RULES, 1.5 METER MARKING DISTANCE.
SUMMER SEASON: Erasmuspark
From April to October we meet Wednesdays at 6:30pm in Erasmuspark, in the open field in the center of the park.
Normally we BBQ afterwards, so feel free to bring some food or drinks. There are also several supermarkets within a few minutes of the field, so you can play it by ear if you prefer.
ALL YEAR: Museumplein
Year round we meet Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm in Museumplein, in the large grassy area behind the van Gogh Museum. If Saturday was a big night, people might show up a little later, closer to 3pm.
We try to play rain or shine, especially in the summer season. The only thing that normally stops us is extreme high wind. Weather forecasts in the Netherlands are notoriously unreliable, so we won't call the game off until that afternoon. Most years the game is never called off in the summer season. Check the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ultimate.amsterdam/ for confirmation.
We have jerseys so you don't need to worry about shirt colors. Drinking water is available in both locations.
The game is pretty casual, and people of all skill levels are welcome. We have everyone from beginners to veterans. Cleats are a good idea, but not necessary.
