Russian developers say MatchPoint will be second largest of its kind in NYC
Brooklyn-based developer Sergey Rybak is spearheading the $20 million project — which was delayed in negotiations with the Board of Standards and Appeals for two and a half years, he said — with two countrymen: entrepreneur Drimtry Druzhinsky and tennis coach Noumroud Moukhatasov.
Construction began last June and the facility should be open within six months, Rybak said.
He noted that the area lacks recreational infrastructure and that “tennis in south Brooklyn — especially among the Russian community — is very, very popular.” MatchPoint will be the second-largest tennis facility in New York City, Rybak said.
