Stephen Iandoli

Executive Director of Group Play and Promotion

Stephen’s passion for pickleball picked up in 2020 when he founded The Midtown Pickleball Club to connect core players with the appropriate competition in a fun, social, setting. MPC players (men and women) won nearly 40 medals in 2021. It’s that experience of matching the right players with the right competition that has him so excited for all the different group play options offered at the New England Pickleball Club. 

A multiple-medal winning tournament player, Stephen is also a certified instructor. When not playing, or organizing group pickleball play, Stephen leads students in various Comm/Jour courses on college campuses in MA. 

Stephen received his BA from Villanova University, MS from Boston University and had a 20+ year career in broadcast/print journalism, covering some of the biggest stories in the nation. Many friends joke that Stephen’s days revolve around pickleball, dinner and his rescue dog, Mia. Simple things bring the most pleasure. Good vibes only.
