Coney Island Gets Massive New Sports Facility

« News |

MatchPoint NYC, a new luxury sports complex, recently opened on New York City’s historic Coney Island. Now, in addition to roller coasters, ferris wheels, carnival games, and fried dough, the island offers visitors and locals alike the chance to get fit at an all-ages sports facility.
The complex comprises 120,000 square feet. Its central feature is a tennis arena with nine courts, the largest indoor tennis center in Brooklyn. Established players have been recruited to lead children’s and adults’ tennis classes, including Numrud Nino Muhatasov, who coached for the Women’s Tennis Association, and Australian Open doubles champions Alyona and Katerina Bondarenko.
A swimming program featuring a junior Olympic-sized pool and headed by 1988 Olympic Bronze medalist Konstantin Petrov is anticipated to attract attention, as is the complex’s fitness center, which offers cycling, cardio classes, yoga, Pilates, gymnastics, free weights, machines, and more.
“More and more, large-scale facilities are finding homes in areas that are already established as lively centres for entertainment, places where there’s a sense of community and fun,” said Eric Willin, COO of EZFacility, a sports facility management softare developer in Woodbury, New York. “Coney Island seems like a natural spot for such a facility.”
Construction on the three-acre facility began in June of last year. Owner Dimitry Druzhinsky and health club director Jason Daniels have said that their selling point will be an innovative program design matched with impeccable customer service.
