Back to top

What does my Philippe-Chatrier ticket include?

As a ticket-holder for a Day Session on court Philippe-Chatrier, you will have a numbered seat. Your ticket also entitles you to attend matches on the high stands of court Simonne-Mathieu and on the outside courts, in open seating.

Back to top

What if it rains?

Luckily, all four major tournaments have roofs as of 2020 now that the French joined the club! So if you have a ticket to Philippe-Chatrier, you’ll only have to wait a few minutes while they close the roof. Other courts will still be at the mercy of the weather, so some matches may be moved to the main show court or delayed. The red clay surface also permits play through light rain.

Back to top

What time is my favorite player playing next year?

Great question and one we receive often. The draw is only released a few days before the tournament, and the order of play is only published the evening before the match. So, if there’s a specific player you’d like to see, we can usually predict which tickets you’ll need to see him or her. However, we can't know the exact time and court until the day before the match.

What can I bring into the tournament?

Only bags with a capacity of 15 litres or less will be allowed inside. All other bags and forbidden items must be deposited at left luggage before the controlled point of entry.

Back to top

When can I enter the tournament?

The Roland-Garros Stadium gates open at 10am: please arrive with plenty of time cause you may be required to wait due to security procedures.

Back to top

What time do matches start?

The matches start at a variety of times ranging from 11:00am to 8:30pm depending on the day and match. Please see our schedule of play page for more information.

Back to top

Is re-entry allowed?

It is unlikely that you will be allowed back in after entry. You are required to pass through three Mandatory Checkpoints (PPO Auteuil, PPO Molitor, PPO Boulogne) at the perimeter in order to then gain access to the Stadium.

Back to top

Can I bring food to the tournament?

You can bring your own lunch or snack (you're allowed to bring everything you want except sharp knives and containers over 1.5 litres).

Back to top

What is the dress code at the Welcome Dinner?

Evening casual wear or dressy evening wear is acceptable, but please refrain from wearing torn shorts, jeans or flip flops.

Back to top

What is the dress code at Roland-Garros?

Due to the weather conditions at this time of year, the watchword for Roland-Garros outfits is casual. You can blend into the background with the players by wearing a total sportswear look.

How do we get from the hotel to the tournament grounds?

It's easy to get around Paris thanks to the extensive rapid transit system, the Paris Métro. The Métropolitain serves a remarkable 303 stations, mostly underground. It's a famous symbol of the city, and it's how we get from the hotel to the grounds. It's an easy, 20-minute ride with no transfers; our hotel is only a five-minute walk from the nearest Métro stop. One of our tour hosts will escort guests to the tennis each day. Métro passes are included in your tour package. Private event transfers are available for an additional fee.

Is travel insurance available?

Travel insurance is an option and our invoices are recognized by providers. However, we recommend being very thorough in your understanding what they will and will not cover. Additionally, GSTT Trip Protection is available, which gives you the flexibility to cancel your trip for any reason up to two weeks before the event start date. Check out the full details of our Trip Protection in our Booking Policy.

What's the weather like in Paris?

The temperature in Paris is usually around 65–75ºF during the day and cooler at night. We suggest smart casual dress for most restaurants in Paris and the Roland-Garros itself. Make sure to pack sunglasses and summer clothing like dresses and shorts, but also a rain jacket and comfortable shoes for your walks to and around the grounds.

Back to top

Is airfare included?

Airfare is not included in the package pricing. We wrote a blog post on how to book your own flights, since it’s the easiest and cheapest way to get your airfare. But if you’d like us to help you with your flights, we’d be glad to do so.

Back to top

Who will I meet at the Welcome Dinner?

You’ll meet lots of people. The welcome dinner is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow travelers; we’ve had many friendships (and even a few marriages) sparked on our tours. You may also meet a special tennis guest. Some of our past guests include top players Caroline Garcia, Reilly Opelka, and the Bryan Brothers, as well as Hall of Famers Tracy Austin, Fred Stolle, and many others. This is also a great time to connect with your tour hosts.

What are the hospitality tiers and what is included in each?

Your category 1 tickets include either La Mezzanine, Le Pavillon, L’Orangerie, Legende, or Loge depending on what package you bought. Link to the hospitality page

What is the mix package?

A mix package is a 3 day package that includes a variety of the different hospitality types. Each Roland-Garros mix package comes with private access to exquisite food, drinks, and of course, watch the best tennis players in the world compete on the grueling red clay.
