Real Deal excerpt from February-

Three-acre sports complex heads to Coney Island

Russian developers say MatchPoint will be second largest of its kind in NYC
A trio of Russian entrepreneurs is redeveloping a three-acre sports complex — slated to be the largest in Brooklyn — in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn, one of the developers told The Real Deal. MatchPoint NYC will provide nine indoor tennis courts; an Olympic-sized swimming pool; facilities for yoga, dance, fencing and gymnastics; as well as a restaurant and juice bar.  

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.
