On the first two instances, the event was conducted as a part of the WTA 125K Series circuit before joining the main WTA tournament ranks. Prior to this, however, the picturesque town of Hua Hin hosted several exhibition matches which featured many tennis superstars like Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Caroline Wozniacki, and Kim Clijsters.

The event will now be played as an International event on the WTA circuit, with a prize pool of $250,000 and a total of 280 ranking points up for grabs.
