Local personalities including politicians, business and media professionals, celebrities, and the public come together each year to watch the fast-paced tournament. Since 2015 leaders from Brooklyn and the Bronx have been smashing the ball to the wall in what is called the Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament, taking place at MatchPoint NYC. Dmitry Druzhinsky explains that the cross-town rivalry is boosted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. with the goal of engaging inner-city and under-served youth in physical sport, and also benefiting the U.S. Wall Ball Association’s education, anti-violence and anti-obesity work. Started in 2012, the tournament celebrates the life of Jonathan Ray, the late brother of the USWA CEO, and the inspiration behind the birth of the association. Dmitry celebrates the opportunity to sponsor organizations which promote healthy living at his complex.
