MatchPoint NYC was constructed on a three acre lot on Coney Island, offering over 120,000 square feet of unparalleled equipment and amenities, with the most notable aspect being an expansive nine court indoor tennis center that is the largest of its kind in Brooklyn. Stemming from the lack of recreational facilities in the area, the luxury sports center was co-founded by Dmitry Druzhinsky in 2013. His dedication to the club’s members, employees, and the community have helped the center quickly become the preferred venue for families, star athletes, and cause driven charity events. “They are great to work with,” states Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and one of the organizers 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.”
As the nation’s lone nonprofit organization with the mission of saving infants’ lives by improving pediatric care, the R Baby Foundation has provided $8 million to hospital programs to date and saved over one million lives. The group’s tennis tournament first happened in 2010. Explained founder Jason Pinsky, “Six years ago I saw the foundation was doing a golf event, and I suggested we should do a tennis event. The first year was sort of a test and it went well, and the demand has been high ever since. We bring together a great group of competitive guys for a great cause.” In 2015 and 2016, the group raised more than $500,000 for childcare initiatives including telemedicine with pediatric experts and mobile simulation training programs, along with symposiums, noted Dmitry Druzhinsky.
