Bud Johnson

SLPCC President

My passion is pickleball and I have seen firsthand the positive benefits of America’s fastest growing sport.  There is no doubt that court space will continue to be an issue.  We are not alone in this struggle as other HOA’s with tennis courts that are underutilized are being questioned by other pickleball clubs as how to share courts to benefit the most homeowners.


Jim Carlson

Vice President

I purchased my home in Cottonwood nine years ago in 2014 and finally moved to Sun Lakes in 2018. Within a month, I played my first pickleball game and instantly became addicted to the fun, the players and the immediate growth of social gatherings and events directly attributed to playing pickleball.

Paul Nichol

Training Team Co-Lead

We were introduced to Pickleball in 2012. Eventually gave up both tennis and softball in favor of pickleball (a bad knee helped make that an easier decision).  Began coaching and teaching friends and family in 2017 and was able to earn certification as an Instructor from USA Pickleball and PPR in 2022.  I’ve found few things more rewarding or satisfying than sharing my love of the game with those eager to learn.
