Politicians, business owners, media professionals, stars, and the public gather once a year to watch the raucous competition. In 2015 local leaders from Brooklyn and the Bronx began smashing the ball to the wall in the Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament at MatchPoint NYC. Dmitry Druzhinsky notes that the competitive rivalry is led by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and serves to pit inner-city and under-served youth in physical activity, and benefit the U.S. Wall Ball Association’s initiatives for education, anti-violence and anti-obesity. Founded in 2012, the tournament celebrates the life of Jonathan Ray, the late brother of the USWA CEO, who inspired the creation of the association. Dmitry is honored to support organizations that encourage a healthy lifestyle to his complex.
