Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of the upscale health and fitness club MatchPoint NYC, understands the critical impact philanthropic work has for those in need. Through partnering with the city’s charities and public welfare campaigns, the developer continuously provides crucial support for schools, health centers, and at-risk kids. Druzhinsky knows that by delivering his time, skills, and resources, thousands of lives across New York City can be positively shaped.
Because of the unprecedented success of Brooklyn’s MatchPoint NYC, co-founder Dmitry Druzhinsky has announced that two more locations will soon be opening in The Big Apple. The prominent real estate developer noted that the second facility will be opening its doors to the public in the fourth quarter of 2016, with 2017 seeing the third opening.
According to the U.S. Wall Ball Association, beach-goers in the 1930s passed time by hitting a bald tennis ball against the sides of wooden jetties, inspiring the New York Parks Department to place community handball courts in city parks. Today, the game of wall ball is a professional sport played at athletic centers across the country. Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of MatchPoint NYC, a premier Brooklyn-based health and fitness complex, was recently accompanied by politicians for the annual Pro Wall Ball Tournament. This large competition – billed as the “Battle of the Boroughs,” – raises awareness of public health and youth empowerment in the area, with the winning team awarded a trophy and bragging rights.
Located on a three acre lot on Coney Island, MatchPointNYC boasts over 120,000 square feet of top of the line equipment and amenities, most notably an expansive nine court indoor tennis arena which is the largest of its kind in Brooklyn. Co-founded by Dmitry Druzhinsky in 2013, the luxury sports center filled a noticeable lack of recreational infrastructure in the region. As a result of his dedication to club members, the staff, and surrounding community, the complex has quickly evolved into the preferred venue for families, internationally renowned athletes, and beneficial charity events. “They are great to work with,” notes Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and part of the management behind this year’s tournament, “He has really gone out of his way to invite us to work with them, and that has helped make the event really special in the two years we have had it here. The foundation does a great job in keeping its expenses low to ensure that the money raised goes towards the cause, and MatchPoint’s generosity helps make that possible.”
Dmitry Druzhinsky, along with the staff at MatchPoint NYC, proudly host a wide range of activities, providing a superior center for sporting excellence. For example, the aquatic director Konstantin Petrov (an outstanding athlete with a Bronze medal from the Olympics and the European Championships Gold medals) trains the swim team on a year-round schedule designed to help athletes meet peak performance. Previously successful competitions also include the International Sambo Championship, where participants from all over the world attended. MatchPoint NYC partnered with the American Amateur Sambo Federation (AASF), and is proud to be the venue of choice for more than ten countries who sent athletes to participate in their Sambo, Judo, or mixed martial arts activities. In the cutting-edge tennis facility, MatchPoint highly ranked national and international players participate in the world-class junior tournament training system, a program available based on invite only. Offering personalized coaching, intensive training activities, match play, mental conditioning, and world-class competition, MatchPoint NYC is the premier fitness center in New York for both youth and adults.
With more than 120,000 square feet of available space, many prominent sporting associations consider MatchPoint NYC, co-founded by Dmitry Druzhinsky, an excellent place to host tournaments and special events. Olympic silver medalist and professional tennis star Dinara Safina attended the Say No to Bullying! Fitness Day. This time, the Personal Training and Group Fitness staff at MatchPoint NYC provided free blood pressure tests, family entertainment and engagement in the problems associated with bullying. At the same time, a one-of-a-kind, exclusive indoor cycling system was introduced. Going a step further than stationary bikes, the Real Ryder Indoor Cycling system provides the first of it’s kind in New York, a real interactive cycling experience.
