The Boston Lobsters are New England's Mylan World TeamTennis presented by GEICO (Mylan WTT) tennis team based in Manchester by the Sea Massachusetts.
The current Boston Lobsters are a reincarnation of two previous WTT teams. The original Lobsters were a charter member of the league in 1974, and folded after just one season. The second Lobsters team were also a charter member of WTT in 1974, founded as the Philadelphia Freedoms. After the original Lobsters folded, Robert Kraft, current owner of the New England Patriots purchased the Freedoms and moved them to Boston renaming them the Lobsters. The second Lobsters team played in Boston for four seasons (1975 to 1978) before folding at the end of the 1978 season. WTT suspended operations shortly thereafter.
In 2005, local Boston businessman Bahar Uttam relaunched the team. Since then, the Lobsters have made the Mylan WTT league's playoffs four times and Uttam continues to play a vibrant role in the greater North Shore of Massachusetts communities.
The Boston Lobsters play home matches at the Boston Lobsters Tennis Center at the Manchester Athletic Club in Manchester, MA, on Atwater Ave., near exit 15 of Rte 128 and about 25 minutes north of Boston. Seating is approximately 1,700.
