Pickleball on Nieuw Amsterdam?

Recommended Posts

We are sailing on the Nieuw Amsterdam in 11 days (yeah!!)...  Can anyone tell me if they set up pickleball courts on this ship, and if yes, are they set up every day and do they hold organized games/tournaments?  Thanks!

There is pickle ball equipment at the paddle ball court - on the upper deck near the basketball cage area on the sister ship Eurodam. There are pickle ball events in the daily schedule, but not sure if there is a formal tournament - though with enough interest i assume this could be arranged.

Thank you for this quick reply!  I'm not sure what it will be like playing Pickleball on a moving ship in the wind...  lol  But, I'm willing to give it a try!

There are high glass barriers around the court area so this limits the wind - they don't want their pickle balls rolling out to sea either.  :classic_tongue:

 

More often than not, sailing is smooth enough that you probably won't even notice. Hope it works out - this is a very popular and growing sport and great it can be played while onboard a ship..
