Winmau has agreed a new sponsorship deal with the Dutch Darts Association (NDB) that will see their dartboards and equipment exclusively used and endorsed by the NDB for the next 2 years.

Winmau and the NDB have worked in partnership for many years, but this new agreement extends the relationship to include more brand options for Winmau surrounding the NDB and the Dutch Open (the largest open in the world, with over 3,500 players participating).

The Winmau Blade 4 dartboard will be used at all NDB events, including the RTV Drenthe televised Dutch Open.

Paul Engelbertink, Head of Marketing for the NDB, said “Continuing our very close relationship Winmau is a pleasure for us. We have worked with them for many years and they have provided us with invaluable support and the best equipment on the market.

The Dutch players enjoy playing on the Blade 4, and to have the backing of a major global brand is a big boost for the NDB.”

Ian Flack, Sales and Marketing Director of Winmau, paid tribute to the NDB: “Darts in the Netherlands has been transformed thanks to the NDB’s support and professional approach to the game of darts.

The Dutch Open Darts alone attracts over 3,500 players every year, and is a pivotal tournament in the BDO and WDF system. This year is the 36th Dutch Open Darts, and it continues to create household names of the superstars that participate thanks to the excellent television coverage.

The market in the Netherlands has really started to boom, and this is largely down to the forward-thinking attitude of the NDB who are without question one of the world’s most pro-active darts organisations.”
