Getting to Know TMPC Members – Wade Johnson

HELLO, MY NAME IS Wade  Johnson.
 
I HAVE BEEN A TMPC MEMBER since it started.
 
I FIRST HEARD ABOUT PICKLEBALL at the Reno Sr Games several years ago.
 
I LOVE PICKLEBALL BECAUSE  of the exercise,  social aspects, competitiveness, and the chance to play in tournaments and meet new people.
 
MY OTHER HOBBIES AND INTERESTS INCLUDE before pickleball I used to post over 100 rounds of golf every year, ski over 60 days each winter, and play on 5 different USTA tennis teams each season.  Now my other hobby is visiting National Parks with my wife Denise.
 
I PLAY PICKLEBALL AT LEAST 6 days a week.
 
MY DREAM PICKLEBALL PARTNER IS whoever will take me since Scott Moore turned me down.
 
IN MY PREVIOUS (OR CURRENT) LIFE I WAS (AM) the district manager and marketing manager for a large steel company in the Midwest.
MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THAT  I have been helicopter skiing several times.
