The lavish sports center was co-founded by Dmitry Druzhinsky in 2013, after identifying a shortage of recreational infrastructure in the area. As a result of his dedication to club’s members, employees, and the community, the complex has rapidly become the favored venue for families, expert athletes, and cause related charity events. “They are great to work with,” said Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and one of the runners of this year’s tournament, “He has gone the extra mile to invite us to work with them, and that has helped make the event terrific in the two years we have held it here. The foundation does an excellent job in keeping its expenses minimal to make sure that the funds raised goes towards the cause, and MatchPoint’s kindness helps make that possible.”

Jason Pinsky founded the charity’s tennis tournament in 2010, “Six years ago I noticed the foundation was organizing a golf event, and I recommended we should organize a tennis event. The initial year was like a pilot and it went well, and the demand has been huge ever since. We bring together an amazing set of competitive guys for an amazing cause.” In 2015 and 2016, the Foundation is glad to have raised more than $500,000 for childcare initiatives covering telemedicine with pediatric specialists, mobile simulation training programs, and symposiums. Dmitry Druzhinsky’s MatchPoint NYC is sited on a three acre lot on Coney Island and has more than 120,000 square feet of top of the line equipment and facilities, but its most salient aspect is a huge nine court indoor tennis arena, the vastest of its kind in Brooklyn.
