Ottawa’s Suds Buds & Windmills: Who Are We?

The Ottawa Suds Buds & Windmills (SBW) was established in 2010. At the time of its creation, the main goal was to provide co-ed opportunities to play safe recreational-level softball.

Now SBW has grown into a miniature league, playing softball while also adding Futsal, Volleyball and Ball Hockey to its roster. SBW also organizes annual softball tournaments, events and charity outreaches in the Ottawa region.

SBW continues to foster new friendships and provides new experiences to young Ottawa adults to play and grow as a team.

Over the years, SBW has grown and learned with the help of its sponsors: Jack Astor’s, Northern Phenix, Southbank Dodge, Dinardo's Ski.Bike.Hike and Katimavic Massage Therapy.
