The first edition of the grass court tournament in Rosmalen took place in 1989 and was considered a test event with eight international players. Miloslav Mečíř, gold medal winner of the 1988 Olympic Games, won on the grass courts of the Autotron. A year later, in 1990, the tournament was part of the newly established ATP Tour and the tournament was won by Amos Mansdorf. At that time the tournament in Rosmalen was the only grass court tournament on the European mainland.
In 1996 the ladies single and double competitions were added to the tournament. Anke Huber was the first winner, and Hlasek/Stich (gentlemen) and Neiland/Schultz (ladies) won the doubles competitions.
Up to and including 2014 the tournament was organized one week before Wimbledon and was reckoned as preparation tournament for Wimbledon. From 2015 the grass court tournament of Rosmalen is organized one week after Roland Garros and is still seen as an ideal preparation for Wimbledon, the world’s largest and leading grass court tournament.
