Joe was ranked #5 in the state of Georgia in 1989, which led him to play collegiate tennis singles and doubles for Georgia Tech in Atlanta. He has coached many state and nationally ranked juniors and adults during his career. In 2003 he was voted Best of the Emerald Coast teaching professional.

Joe has been certified with the USPTA as an Elite Professional for 20 years and was nominated USPTA 2006–2007 District Pro of the Year, Florida division for the Panhandle. He was the USPTA FL District President for District 1 from 2010–2013 and currently serves on the USPTA FL board as Vice President. He has been awarded USPTA FL District President of the year for 2011 and 2012 and received the prestigious honor of USTA FL & USPTA FL service award in 2011. Joe is the tournament director for the 34 year old Helen Drake Invitational Tennis tournament, one of the largest USTA adult tournaments in the state of Florida. The Helen Drake has been awarded three times, the most recent in 2013 for the AL Mills Memorial Adult Tournament of the Year by USTA FL.

Joe D'Aleo is very much involved in junior tennis in Florida. Early on as part of the pathway team for 10 and Under Tennis and today with TAUT programs and tournaments at his facility. Since TOPS'L features exclusively clay courts lines for short court tennis programs are being nailed down as needed.
