World-class professional tennis team the Boston Lobsters is gearing up for another season at Harvards Bright Hockey Center, scheduled for July 6-26. The home of the Lobsters has been modified to include a new cooling system and improved sight lines for a more intimate seating venue than seasons past. This season, special guests and live entertainment are also planned.
Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, who led the Lobsters to the World Team Tennis (WTT) League finals last season, will return to the team’s lineup. Head coach Anne Smith will also be returning for the 2006 campaign.
This year’s season opens earlier than previous years, allowing the WTT final to be played immediately following the conclusion of the regular season. The best teams from both the eastern and western conferences (six per conference) will battle for the King Trophy at the WTT finals on July 28-30 in Newport Beach, Calif.
Season tickets, and family and corporate hospitality packages are now available. Children’s individual match reserved tickets have been reduced to $10 for the 2006 season.
