Jason Pinsky founded the charity’s tennis tournament in the year 2010, “Six years back I found out that the foundation was organizing a golf event, and suggested to them that we should start a tennis event. The preliminary year was like a test and it went well, and the demand has been massive ever since. We amass an incredible set of enterprising individuals for a wonderful cause.” In 2015 and 2016, the Foundation is delighted to have raised more than $500,000 for childcare works including telemedicine with pediatric specialists, mobile simulation training programs, and symposiums. Dmitry Druzhinsky’s MatchPoint NYC is located on a three acre lot on Coney Island and has more than 120,000 square feet of swanky equipment and facilities, but its most important feature is an immense nine court indoor tennis arena, the biggest of its kind in Brooklyn.
In 2012, Dmitry Druzhinsky took on a $20 million venture to construct New York’s finest health and fitness destination. After the extended negotiation process, a desirable three-acre lot in Coney Island was secured, and plans to construct a 120,000 sq. ft. complex, the biggest of its kind in Brooklyn, were drawn. After completing construction in 2014, MatchPoint NYC immediately pushed the envelope for recreational infrastructure across the city, becoming the preferred fitness center for families, professional athletes, and charitable events. MatchPoint’s unrivaled, state of the art building provides an expansive array of training programs, organized sports matches, and fitness classes that many facilities simply cannot accommodate, while its dedicated and professionally trained crew of certified instructors, personal trainers and nutritionists motivate, push and encourage members to increase their overall health and happiness.
MatchPoint NYC was the site for the annual tennis tournament by R Baby Foundation for the second year in a row on Saturday, April 16. Dmitry Druzhinsky, the venue’s co-founder is pleased to announce that more than $250,000 was raised as an outcome of the event, which featured tennis players and Wall Street’s chief investors. The R Baby Foundation is America’s first and single nonprofit body with the goal of saving babies’ lives by enhancing pediatric care, and till date, has supported hospital programs and safeguarded over one million lives by contributing $8 million dollars.
Because of the unforeseen success of Brooklyn’s MatchPoint NYC, co-founder Dmitry Druzhinsky has announced that two more locations are on the way. The prominent real estate developer noted that the second facility will be opening its doors to the public late in 2016, with 2017 seeing the following location.
