About Us

Lobster Sports Founder in 1970

Our Company Story

In 1970, Harry Giuditta, a retired bank president, bought Green Brook Developing Company, a bankrupt manufacturer of poor quality tennis ball machines. Harry then did a remarkable thing. He recalled every ball machine ever built, redesigned and repaired each one, and then redelivered them to each customer free of charge.

Harry understood good business is when all sides win. Investing in creating satisfied customers, content employees, and pleased vendors leads to receiving the best of reputations.

Forty three years later, Harry's legacy continues through his grandson, Tony Potter, along with his wife, Leilani Makuakane.

Why does a 2-year warranty matter?

Does the 2 Year Warranty Really Matter?

Why would one company offer a two-year warranty and another company offer a 1 year warranty? Lobster has so much confidence in its products that it can afford to offer a 2 year warranty. Ask yourself why our competition doesn't have equal confidence in the durability of its products.

When comparing purchase prices between machines, you should consider the two year warranty carefully. The cost of ownership will quickly rise if the machine breaks down soon after the warranty expires. Imagine owning a machine for 14 months, it malfunctions and now you are out $50 to ship it to the factory at least $100-$200 to fix it and $50 to ship it home. A $300 repair bill might make you think twice about the true cost of purchasing that 1 year warranty machine.

Finally, consider that Lobster Sports, Inc has been in business for 39 years – that means we were in business for 20 years before our competition even considered opening its doors. Quality isn't some new found commitment, it is part of who we are and have been for generations. When you buy a Lobster ball machine, you purchase peace of mind because you know you have bought a product built for life.
