“From the beginning, MatchPoint NYC was intended to be more than just a basic health center,” Dmitry Druzhinsky explained. “Our approach has been to make it into a community hub, a kind of athletic village where Brooklyn residents can socialize, compete and collaborate.” A few of the events held at MatchPoint NYC include the 2015 Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament where politicians from Brooklyn and the Bronx spoke about public health and youth empowerment; the Say No to Bullying! Fitness Day with renowned tennis star and Olympic silver medalist, Dinara Safina; and the yearly New York Tennis Tournament, which has taken place at MatchPoint NYC since 2014. Wall Street leaders like Jon Bader, Bruce Richards, Rob Pohly, Jeremy Mindich, Dax Vlassis and Bill Ackman take part in what New York Tennis Magazine called “one of the top tennis charity events around, and… one of the biggest and most successful events put on by the R Baby Foundation.” More than $500,000 has been raised by the event in just the two years taking place at MatchPoint NYC, earmarked to improve infant medical care through a range of hospital programs: telemedicine with pediatric experts, mobile simulation training program and symposiums.
