Board Members

Frank Stucki – President

I became ADDICTED to Pickle Ball three years ago while wintering in New Symnra Beach Florida. I do believe we need to start a 12 Step Program for this wonderful addiction. Married to Judith Jardine Stucki who shares in the addiction. Two Children and five grandchildren. I am Honored to be President of this wonderful organization.

Tony Yankauskas – Treasurer

I was born in Connecticut. After college I moved around a lot including living in London, Hong Kong and Tokyo before moving to Minnesota in 2001. I worked in Finance and General Management during my career with my last job being Chief Financial Officer of Rosemount, Inc. (a division of Emerson Electric) which has major facilities in Shakopee, Chanhassen, and Eden Prairie.

My wife Toby and I live in Eden Prairie.

I am an erratic pickleball player but hope to get better.

Nancy Devitt – Secretary

I have been playing pickleball for 6 years, primarily in Eden Prairie. I am a voice for all the members who think of themselves as “average” and appreciate the inclusivity that SWMPB fosters. Professionally, I retired from a 32-year career as a planner for Hennepin County in the human services area. I will use my planning and organizational skills to support the club’s growth and enhance our influence in the recreation resource decisions made by local government bodies in the southwest suburbs

Laurie Hynes – Co-Vice President

I am married and have two children. My husband and I have lived in St. Louis Park for about 30-years. I started playing Pickleball in March of 2016 after I heard about the game while on a committee to determine needs for additions to the recreation center in St. Louis Park. I knew immediately this was a sport that could fill my need to “compete” in a fun, social way. I look forward to helping grow the sport and the SW Metro Club and meeting more PB players!

Jean Weiss – Co-Vice President

Dianna St. Aubin – At Large

Married. Husband, Tom, a fellow pickleball player. We have two children and five grandchildren. I have lived in Richfield for 44 years and have been playing pickleball for four years. I thoroughly enjoy the social aspects of the game and have been blessed with many new friends. When I first began playing, I was most fortunate to have had so many Southwest members who followed the mantra of “giving back” by taking the time to instruct and drill me in the finer points of the game. I have followed that same mantra as an instructor and would appreciate the opportunity to continue in a different capacity as a member of the board.

CJ Williams – At Large

I grew up in the Hopkins/Edina area and had a career in teaching. I raised 3 sons and now have 3 grandchildren. I currently live in Bloomington with my husband (not a PB player) and enjoy gardening, bridge, and involved in several church activities and volunteer work.

I started playing pickleball about 5 years ago and was hooked. I met so many great people and hope to be a positive advocate for the membership.
