Meet Joe Borrelli, 
Raleigh, NC

Representing the city of Raleigh, NC is Joe Borrelli.  Joe has been participating in racquet sports his entire life, racquetball being his sport of choice with over 30 years of tournament competition.

Joe relocated to Raleigh from upstate NY in 1996. At that time he introduced Paddle Tennis to his Brier Creek community. In 2012 he was introduced to Pickleball at the Cary, NC Bond Park Community Center.   It was during those pickleball gatherings that Joe realized he'd found a game he could play for a long time.

He has successfully introduced Pickleball at Brier Creek Community Center in Raleigh, having an active participation of about 40 senior adults in his first 6 weeks. At this time he is working with the City of Raleigh to offer Pickleball as an adult activity at various city community centers.

Joe's education degree is in Physical Education and Health. After a 33 year career with IBM, he is excited to get back into the recreational field with teaching and participating in Pickleball.
