The International Series (known before 2000 as the ATP World Series) was a series of professional tennis tournaments held internationally as part of the ATP Tour until 2008.

The series was renamed ATP World Tour 250 series in 2009. International Series offered players cash prizes (tournaments have purses from $416,000 to 1,000,000) and the ability to earn ATP ranking points. They generally offered less prize money and fewer points than the ATP International Series Gold, but more than tournaments on the ATP Challenger Series.
