Middleton, MA, February 09, 2010 -- The Boston Lobsters, New England's professional tennis team, kicked off their 2010 season this weekend with a TeamTennis format co-ed tournament at the Manchester Athletic Club (MAC) in Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts. Forty-eight participants from various surrounding communities registered for this event. Teams were established based on skill level. The winning team received tickets to a Boston Lobsters match and an invitation to the Launch Party.
Food and beverages were provided by the Lobsters Sponsors: Polar Beverages, Barefoot Wine, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Cabot Cheese and Chowder Tasting courtesy of Woodman's of Essex.
Boston Lobsters CEO Bahar Uttam said, "I believe everyone enjoyed themselves from the feedback I have received. I consider the evening a smashing success! We are looking forward to our upcoming social tournaments at other leading tennis clubs in the area."
MAC Tennis Program Director Todd Carpenter, MAC Junior Program Director David Colby, and Head Tennis Coach Alex Howard were instrumental in organizing the program.
Regarding her play here against the Boston Lobsters last year, top-ranked Serena Williams said, "One thing I love about TeamTennis is that we get to travel to a lot of cities that don't have [major] tennis in those cities, so it's really exciting to be here. I come here and I look at the stadium and I see how kind of warm and intimate it is, it feels good. It's so small and your fans are really close to you and they kind of get to know a little bit more of a sense of how you play and how you are. It's awesome. I love it, actually.''
