Held at The Racquet Club of The South in Norcross, GA on March 24-30, 2003, this tournament features world class professional tennis players from all over the world and is benefitting The Neighborhood Charter School, an in-town elementary school in Grant Park, which opened in the fall of 2002. The 98 year old Atlanta school building, housing the 105 kindergarten through third grade students, was destroyed by fire in February following a full year of extensive remodeling by parents and volunteers.

Admission to the event is free, but donations benefitting the Neighborhood Charter School will be accepted.
