French Open Packages
May 22 – Jun 5, 2016 | Paris, France
Roland Garros, also called The French Open, is the largest clay court tournament of the year. Because of the slow playing surface and the five-set men’s singles matches without a final set tiebreak, it is considered to be the most physically demanding major.
Grand Slam Tennis Tours has a wide variety of tennis seats, including Category 1, Category 2, and Loge locations in Philippe Chatrier (Court Central), boasting excellent views of all the tennis action. Our choice accommodations, W Paris – Opéra, is situated between Paris’ most famous department stores and the exclusive boutiques of the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

You will have excellent Category 1 or Category 2 seats on Court Philippe Chatrier (Center Court), depending on the ticket package you purchase. We also have a limited number of Category 1 or 2 seats on Suzanne Lenglen, the second largest court at Roland Garros, where many of the best matches take place over the first ten days of the tournament.
What is Included in the Hotel Package Price? Your package will include hotel accommodations with breakfast daily, airport arrival transfers, a welcome dinner, farewell dinner, metro pass, commemorative gift and the services of our tour hosts. We also offer optional tennis playing on specified days followed by a traditional Parisien Brunch.
How Flexible are Tour Travel Dates?
Very. You can book additional or fewer hotel nights. You even have the option to combine tours for more days of tennis. Ask your Grand Slam Tennis Tours agent for details.
What is the Weather Like in Paris?
The temperature in Paris is usually around 68-72ºF during the day and cooler at night. Dress at the tournament is casual, and at our dinners and most restaurants in Paris, “smart casual” is suggested.
How Do We Get to Roland Garros?
A Grand Slam Tennis Tours host will escort Premium Package guests to the tennis each day. Classic package guests will independently go to Roland Garros by a 20-minute Metro ride from our Left Bank hotel. Metro passes included in your tour package are good for travel on the Paris Metro, buses and trains. Private event transfers are available for an additional fee.
Should you book an additional night on the Finals package?
In the unlikely event that the Finals are rain delayed until Monday, we suggest you stay in Paris for an extra day and return on Tuesday. Monday Finals are a rare occurrence, so you will have a full day available to sight see and shop.
What’s the Tennis Tickets & Rain Policy?
If matches are cancelled due to weather or for other reasons, seat privileges are lost for that day. No rain checks are issued. Grand Slam Tennis Tours does offer Rain Insurance, so ask your sales representative for details.
