As per the U.S. Wall Ball Association, in the 1930s beach-goers hit a bald tennis ball against the walls of wooden piers. This stimulated the interest of New York Parks Department to create public handball courts in city parks. Today, the game is a professional sport commonly known as Wall Ball and is played at athletic hubs all over the country. Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of MatchPoint NYC, a leading health and fitness complex in Brooklyn, was recently joined by leading lawmakers for the Pro Wall Ball Tournament. The yearly impressive competition known as “Battle of the Boroughs,” educates people about public health and youth empowerment. The winning team was given a trophy and a year of bragging rights.
