The Boston Lobsters pro tennis team originally joined the WTT league in 1974 and competed until 1978. Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots owned the team during these four years.
In 2005, local Boston businessman Bahar Uttam, retired CEO of Synetics Corporation, relaunched the team.
The Boston Lobsters play home matches at the Joan Norton Stadium at the Ferncroft Country Club in Middleton, MA, on Ferncroft Road, next to Danvers on Route 1 and about 19 minutes north of Boston. Seating is approximately 1,700.
