Play Pickleball on Nine Celebrity Cruises Ships!

Pickleball, the popular racquet sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong, is now available on nine Celebrity Cruises ships, making it a fun and accessible activity for passengers of all ages and skill levels.[0] Pickleball is a low-impact sport played on a court similar in size to a doubles badminton court, with a modified tennis net.[1] It is played with a hard paddle and a plastic ball with perforations.[2] Players can enjoy the game in singles or doubles, and it is a great way to get exercise, improve hand-eye coordination, and have fun with friends and family.[2]

The nine Celebrity Cruises’ ships offering pickleball include two Edge Series ships – Celebrity Beyond and Celebrity Apex; plus, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Solstice, and Celebrity Summit.[0] On Edge class ships Celebrity Beyond and Celebrity Apex, pickleball is played at the lush and roomy Rooftop Garden, while on Solstice Series ships, it is offered on the Sports Deck (Deck 15).[0] Meanwhile, on Millennium Series ships, players can head to the Sports Court (Deck 12).[0]

It is important to familiarize yourself with the rules of pickleball and follow them at all times, such as serving from the correct side of the court, returning the ball before it bounces a second time on your side of the court, and not hitting the ball while standing in the non-volley zone.[3] It is also important to wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and footwear while playing pickleball, such as shoes with non-marking soles to protect the court, and clothes that allow you to move freely and comfortably.[3] Sun protection, such as a hat or sunglasses, is also a good idea if you are playing outdoors.[3]

The industry of pickleball is only expected to grow in the coming years, and Celebrity Cruises is proud to offer this social, fun, and trending activity to passengers of all ages and skill levels. With locations of pickleball courts varying by ship, you can enjoy the game with views of some of the world’s most amazing places all around you.[4]
