Getting to Know TMPC Members – Phil Hanna

HELLO, MY NAME IS Phil Hanna.

I HAVE BEEN A TMPC MEMBER FOR ABOUT three years.

I FIRST HEARD ABOUT PICKLEBALL  at Tucson, Arizona.

I LOVE PICKLEBALL BECAUSE I love the social interaction as well as the athletics. Good exercise!

I PLAY PICKLEBALL AT LEAST three times a week. 

MY OTHER HOBBIES AND INTERESTS INCLUDE  – I am a member of the Historical Society of Dayton Valley and LBL Equine Rescue.

MY DREAM PICKLEBALL PARTNER IS  Amy Adams.

IN MY LIFE AWAY FROM THE PICKLEBALL COURTS includes Navy veteran Vietnam era, Professional painter/ paperhanger (30 years), professional truck driver (CDL) .

MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THAT Dave Whitefield is my men’s doubles partner.

Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself with us, Phil!

We would love to learn a bit more about more members. Please share your info below:
