"Boston Lobsters has been a tradition with me and my girlfriends for 5 years now. We are all Moms who love to play tennis for fun and as a competitive outlet. Most of us just picked up a racket and learned in our late 30's and early 40's. We are all very passionate about the sport and Boston Lobsters summer tennis is a such a great venue! I've been working with Darlene every Summer  setting up the Peckham group party tent.  It's been an incredible opportunity to meet the young rising tennis stars and greats like Martina Navratilova, Anna Kournikova and our favorite John Isner. Last Summer was so special because we got to send off John Isner.  After his tennis match at the Boston Lobsters, he went directly to the Olympics. It was so much fun and so exciting! It's also such a great venue for families and kids. The staff at Boston Lobsters make it so much fun with their crazy announcer Steve Calechman & activities the kids can participate on the court in between matches. Honestly, its just a wonderful summertime tradition." Chris Peckham _ Andover,MA
