As a sports and fitness center for the whole family, MatchPointNYC is fast becoming a global destination for tennis, swimming, basketball, gymnastics, martial arts and other activities. As members and guests sample the different activities available, famous professional athletes are enjoying the facilities during training sessions. With celebrity guests in addition to special occasions and fundraisers, an abundance of sporting events call MatchPoint NYC home. The sheer size and versatility of the luxury recreation center provides ease of use for expert competitions, with proper regulation sized facilities ensuring accurate results. Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of the premier Brooklyn-based center, is excited about the activities and competitions happening at MatchPoint NYC.
Local personalities including politicians, business and media professionals, celebrities, and sports fans gather each year to watch the fast-paced action. Since 2015 leaders from Brooklyn and the Bronx have been smashing the ball to the wall in the Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament, which takes place at MatchPoint NYC. Dmitry Druzhinsky says that the cross-town rivalry is fostered by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. with the goal of engaging inner-city and under-served youth in physical activity, and also benefiting the U.S. Wall Ball Association’s education, anti-violence and anti-obesity initiatives. Started in 2012, the tournament celebrates the life of Jonathan Ray, the late brother of the USWA CEO, and inspiration behind the forming of the association. Dmitry celebrates the opportunity to support organizations which promote a healthy lifestyle at his complex.
