A tennis match, like an elementary-school spelling bee, requires quiet audience members, well-practiced participants, and thick-skinned judges willing to be berated by John McEnroe. Play by the rules with today's GrouponLive deal: for $80, you get a premium box-seat ticket (a $60 value) and sports package (a $100 value) to the Boston Lobsters's final match of the season versus the St. Louis Aces on July 18 at the Joan Norton Stadium at Ferncroft Country Club in Middleton (a $160 total value). Seating within the premium box-seat section, located in the court’s first five rows, will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis upon ticket pickup at will call.
The Boston Lobsters, a co-ed tennis team, compete head-to-head for playoff positioning against fellow World TeamTennis leaguers during a series of matches. One premium box-seat ticket grants racket enthusiasts ergonomic chair backs and arm rests, as well as a view of the season's final match against the St. Louis Aces, which determines postseason mash-ups as well as who sits shotgun on the team tour bus. A prematch meet-and-greet package entertains observers with an exclusive party tent stocked with cheese platters and a cash bar open from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Inside the tent at 6:30 p.m., baseline buffs can acquire autographs and scrapbook-worthy snapshots from Boston Lobsters team members, coach Bud Schultz, marquee player Mark Philippoussis, and genetically mutated crustaceans easily mistaken for mascots. At 4:45 p.m., guests can snatch up Boston Lobsters–inspired swag such as a tote bag, coffee mug, and T-shirt package. This deal also includes a VIP onsite parking pass.
