The Springfield Lasers are a World TeamTennis franchise. The franchise was purchased and donated to the city of Springfield, Missouri by the Cooper family in 1996. They play their home matches at Mediacom Stadium at Cooper Tennis Complex.
The team advanced to the league final in 1999, 2001, 2009, 2013 and 2014, but has yet to win the championship. In 2010, the Lasers had the best regular season record (10–4) in World TeamTennis and advanced to the WTT Western Conference Championship but lost to the Kansas City Explorers, 20 to 17.
In 2015, the Lasers made slight modifications to their team logo. The words "Springfield" and "tennis" were also relocated. Affair purple ( ) was replaced with kingfisher daisy, a deeper shade of purple. Pacific blue ( ) was also replaced with deep sky blue. At the same time, the Lasers began using an alternate logo with the same design but a different color scheme. In place of kingfisher daisy was Han violet-blue ( ), and bright turquoise ( ) appears where deep sky blue is seen in the main logo.
