AMBATO, September 30, 2022

For the second consecutive year, the ATP Challenger Tour will return to Ambato, Ecuador for the Ambato La Gran Ciudad tournament. The $53,120 clay-court event will be held from October 16 to 23 at the Club Tungurahua. Ambato is located in the central Andean valley of Ecuador and is the capital of the province of Tungurahua, at an elevation of 2,577 meters above sea level.

“It is a pleasure to be here again,” said former World No. 6 and tournament director Nicolas Lapentti.

“People of the city can enjoy great tennis action with players from different parts of the world. Defending champion Thiago Tirante, who played a great final last year against Juan Pablo Varillas, will be part of this year’s line-up. Roberto Quiroz will also compete in front of his home crowd.”
