June 22, 2010

Andover, MA — The organizers of the Atlanta Tennis Championships have chosen DecoColor, from the makers of DecoTurf, as the Official Surface of their world-class tennis tournament. The Atlanta Tennis Championships will take place July 17-25 at the Atlanta Athletic Club, in Johns Creek, Georgia as part of the prestigious Olympus US Open Series. The ATP World Tour returns to Georgia for the first time in 9 years when Atlanta last staged an ATP World Tour event from 1992-2001 that was played on green clay.

“In welcoming the Olympus US Open Series to Atlanta, we wanted to provide the best setting for an exciting and competitive tournament,” said Tournament Director Bill Oakes, “and we are confident that the professionals at DecoTurf, with their extensive experience with championship events, will help us accomplish that.”

“DecoTurf is excited to have once again been chosen as the surface for an Olympus US Open Series tournament,” said John Graham, DecoTurf’s Managing Director, “and we are pleased to be working with Signature Tennis of Woodstock, Georgia.” Signature Tennis is a full-service tennis court construction firm that builds and services courts throughout Georgia, and brings extensive experience and pride to every job.

DecoTurf has been the Surface of the US Open for 32 years and is the most recognized tennis court surface in the world. DecoTurf’s multi-layer cushioned tennis surface has been selected for use at the world’s most prestigious events including the two most-recent Olympic Games, Davis Cup, Fed Cup, and the Olympus US Open Series tournaments. DecoTurf is also an Official Surface of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and the Professional Tennis Registry.
