About Roland Garros: The French Open

Why You Want to Go

Though the French Open is the smallest of the four Grand Slam tournaments, it is widely considered to be the most grueling. The clay courts slow the ball down considerably compared with grass or hard courts, meaning that the players need to hit harder and move faster. This adds an element of surprise to the tournament, where players who usually perform excellently on other courts may find themselves unprepared to keep up at Roland Garros. History is made time and time again at this hugely exciting tournament.

As would be natural in its Parisian setting, the French Open is also one of the world’s most fashion-conscious tennis tournaments. Players and spectators alike put in extra effort to look très chic, making the stadium an excellent place for people watching.

Did we mention that the French Open takes place in Paris? Historic, romantic, glamorous, Paris! As if the museums, monuments, shopping, wine, and cheese weren’t reason enough to head to France for the summer… Read our blog post about why we believe romantic Paris is the perfect location for the French Open and the world’s most romantic sport.

Paris French Open Travel

History and Locale of the French Open

The French Open began in 1891. It is held in the Stade Roland-Garros, named after a famed French aviator of the same name. The historic pilot was the first man to cross the Mediterranean in a plane, and died in combat in WWI. Though Roland Garros was not a tennis player, he was nick-named “the Ace” for being the first aviator to shoot down five enemy planes. The Stadium was constructed and named in his honor in 1928. Its largest court seats nearly 15,000 spectators.

The Stade Roland-Garros is located in the southern section of the Bois de Boulogne in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. The complex is accessible by Métro and bus, as well as by a seasonal taxi service that runs with greater frequency during the French Open. All visitors traveling with Bucket List Events are guaranteed transportation assistance during the events.

 

French Open Tickets

There are only two ways to legally purchase tickets to the French Open: through the official Roland Garros website, or through official French Open VIP and corporate hospitality agencies.  Ticket sales open to the public on March 22. It is important to purchase tickets ahead of time, as no tickets will be available for purchase at the stadium itself before or during the tournament. While we cannot obtain tickets for you, our experienced travel agents are happy to assist you in the process. We can help you decide on which passes best suit your needs as well as with any questions that you may have.
