A boat cruise in Amsterdam with the Dutch PH players

Following the example of the Royals the Dutch participated in the Amsterdam Gay Pride. Together with 5 other sportgroups (tennis, squash, basketball, ballroom dansing and wresting) they shared a boat with the name "6 sports on 1 boat".

Gay Pride in Amsterdam is a very special event, The parade is carried out by boat through the canals, which gives it a very different feel from other cities.  Every year, it attracts around 500,000 spectators, and is one of the most colourful and impressive gay pride parades in the world. The parade features participation from around 80 boats specially decorated for the occasion. All will bring music, DJs and people competing to see who can dress up in the most extravagant way on board.


The Dutch PH players invite you to come on board. Interested send them an e-mail
