The city was previously home to the Quito Open, a Grand Prix-affiliated tournament played from 1979 to 1982.

Quito is located at 2800 metres above sea level, more than twice as high than the Alps tournaments. Players must adapt to thinner air, which causes breathing difficulties and makes the ball faster.

Victor Estrella Burgos won the title in 2015, successfully defended it in 2016 and did so again in 2017. However, he lost in the second round of the 2018 edition to Gerald Melzer.

On 24 August 2018, tournament organisers announced that the tournament had folded due to lack of financial support.[2]
