ATLANTA (AP) - A leading manufacturer of tennis and racket sports equipment and apparel has announced that its company's headquarters are moving to Atlanta.
Prince Global Sports officials said in a statement Thursday that the company is finalizing a lease agreement at a commercial property in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood.
Prince Global Sports is currently based in Bordentown, N.J. and CEO Mike Ballardie says Atlanta is a natural fit for the company's headquarters because of Atlanta's thriving tennis community.
