The Atlanta Tennis Championships is moving again – this time across town. Beginning in 2011, the tournament will be played at the Racquet Club of the South in suburban Norcross.

The tournament previously was held at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek.

Reigning singles champion Mardy Fish and finalist John Isner have committed to return to Atlanta next year. Both players finished in the Top 20 in the year-end South African Airways 2010 ATP World Tour Rankings.

The Racquet Club of the South is no stranger to major tennis tournaments. The facility was the site of Fed Cup in 1990 and a men’s World Championship Tennis (WCT) tournament during the 1980s.

The club features a permanent outdoor stadium along with 26 outdoor courts, eight indoor courts and two platform tennis courts.
