The ATP World Tour 500 series is a new series for tennis tournaments of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) from the 2009 ATP World Tour, replacing the ATP International Series Gold, and incorporating many of the same events.[1] It is the third highest tier of men's tournament after the four Grand Slam tournaments, and the ATP World Tour Masters 1000.

The series includes 11 tournaments, with a number of 500 rankings points to win for the events' singles champions –which accounts for the name of the series. Tournaments have various draws of 32, 48 and 56 for singles and 16 and 24 for doubles. It is mandatory for leading players to enter at least four 500 events, including at least one after the US Open; if they play less than four, or fail to play in one after the US Open they get a "zero" score towards their world ranking for each one short.
