Berry College has announced that its Rome Tennis Center (RTC) will be the host of the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) men’s and women’s tennis championships.

The RTC has teamed with the Rome Sports Commission in an effort to develop a relationship with the ACC so it can host the conference championship and put Rome at the forefront as the perfect location for the event. The RTC is the largest hard-court facility in the U.S., with a surrounding community that can offer a lot for a competition of this size.

Opened during the summer of 2016, the RTC is owned by the city of Rome, Georgia, and built on property that Berry College donated. The center is operated by Berry students who work for Tom Daglis, executive director of the RTC. The center is also the host of Berry tennis matches and has made the creation of Berry College’s Professional Tennis Management (PTM) a reality.

The ACC will send teams from each of its 15 schools, which will include NC State, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Clemson, Florida State, Virginia and Miami. The ACC’s official announcement can be read at www.theacc.com.
