Coney Island has been an area traditionally lacking in recreational infrastructure, but is now home to one of Brooklyn’s newest and most popular facilities. MatchPoint NYC is inspired by the passion for athletics and devotion to South Brooklyn of co-founder and entrepreneur Dmitry Druzhinsky, who brought the luxury sports center to life in 2013 after noticing a dire need in his community. Druzhinsky’s dedication to delivering New York’s preeminent fitness experience has resulted in MatchPointNYC becoming the preferred venue of families, professional athletes, charity events, and even world-class tournaments.
Along with the staff at MatchPoint NYC, Dmitry Druzhinski is proud to offer a diverse range of activities and provide a superior center for sporting excellence. The facility’s aquatic director, Konstantin Petrov, is a phenomenal athlete with a Bronze medal from the Olympics as well as European Championships Gold medals. His swim team trains year-round on a schedule designed to help athletes meet their optimal performance. A previously successful event also is the International Sambo Championship, which saw participants from all over the world participate in their Sambo, Judo, or mixed martial arts activities. MatchPoint is proud to partner with the American Amateur Sambo Federation (AASF) for the event.
