The Boston Lobsters Tennis team was an internationally recognized team based in Boston Massachusetts. It was founded in 1973 by Ray Ciccolo, a Boston Auto dealer, and operated as a member of World Team Tennis (WTT). The team played the home sports at Walter Brown Arena that attracted an average of 2,564 fans every competition. It was a thriller!

However, the team only played for one season and closed operations for lack of finances. Interestingly, the Lobsters closed in the second position in the Atlantic Section with 19 wins and 25 losses. But this was not the last that you would get of the Boston Lobsters.

Tennis 101

Tennis is a unique racket sport that is played individually (against a single opponent) or between two teams with two members each. The sport is played with a tennis racket that is used to strike a rubber ball over or around a net into the opponent’s court. The goal is to strike the ball and maneuver it such that the opponent is unable to hit a valid return.

Tennis is an Olympic sport which implies that it is played at every level of society and ages. Indeed, it can be played even by people on wheelchairs. This is why it is a fancy game for millions of players as a recreation sport. You can also be part of the thrill.
