At the end of May, the world’s top tennis greats, and especially Rafa (hopefully in 2023!), compete at the French Open in Paris for the second Grand Slam of the year and the only one played on clay. Stade Roland Garros includes Philippe-Chatrier, Suzanne Lenglen and Simonne-Mathieu, plus 17 outside courts, providing maximum tennis viewing for tennis fans during the two week event. Recently, RG implemented three day matches and 1 Night Match, as well as a a retractable roof on Philippe-Chatrier, so no more rain delays! The French Open started in 1891, and after switching several venues, it has been played at Stade Roland Garros since 1928.

Roland Garros French Open Schedule and Tickets

Ticket Options

Roland Garros tickets are available to the public, though as expected with any Grand Slam, the demand is far greater than the supply. The Roland Garros website ( sells their tickets over several phases and through various places.

  • Premium Tickets – earliest on sale through their site. These packages include perks like an indoor lounge overlooking the courts, food and drinks, player meet and greets and other upscale freebies.
  • Agencies – Roland Garros sells their tickets via hand-selected partners, who mostly offer very upscale vacations to the French Open, but also offer individual tickets. The official recommended agency will depend on your country and they are all listed on the RG website.
  • Individual Tickets – on sale February 23, 2023 (premium packages) and March 15, 2023 for single tickets. You must first create your account on the RG site and hopefully, you will score them within the first few on-sale hours. See
  • Resale Tickets – at the end of April, ticket owners can resell their personal tickets or packages through the official exchange. Thanks to this resale service, new tickets can be sold at any time until the last day of the tournament, at the official price, with a guarantee of receiving authentic tickets. Keep an eye on the website.
  • Ticket Resellers – while these sites are not "officially" approved by Roland Garros (they actually make a big deal out of not buying from resellers), they do allow those who REALLY want to watch an opportunity to buy tickets. These are also VERY reputable companies, with excellent customer service and 100% guaranteed tickets. Our recommended reseller site (used to be Viagogo, but it appears they no longer sell Roland Garros tickets). We are on the hunt to find you reputable companies!
  • New in 2020! Roland Garros is the last Grand Slam to add a retractable roof, so no more rain delays! Philippe-Chatrier, Suzanne-Lenglen, Simonne-Mathieu and the court 14 all also have lights, so play will continue through completion in the evening.
  • New in 2021! Night Sessions. You can get a "RG Day + Night" ticket for a Day then Night session OR use it for a night session and the following day session
  • New in 2022! – The Grand Slam Board, made up of representatives from all four Slams, announced there be a10-point tie-break played at 6-6 in the final set at all 4 Slams: Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open.

Visiting the French Open at Roland Garros

A few tips about the French Open, especially as compared to other Grand Slam and tennis events:

  • The new retractable roof and lights on Court Philippe-Chatrier ensures all scheduled matches play through to the end, regardless of when the sun sets.
  • Kids Day at RG is Saturday, May 27, 2023
  • Qualifying Rounds – tickets are minimal (€10) but you must reserve them online (no tickets are sold at the stadium). Qualifying matches are played on Courts No. 6 to 15 from May 22-26, 2023.
  • Show Courts: Philippe-Chatrier (New retractable roof), Suzanne Lenglen, Simonne-Mathieu (formerly Court No. 1). The 21-acre tennis complex consists of 20 tennis courts, including 3 stadiums – Court Philippe-Chatrier with a capacity of 14,840 people, Court Suzanne Lenglen with a capacity of 10,068 people, and the new Simonne-Mathieu, which can accommodate almost 5,000 tennis fans.
  • Ticket Limit – there is a 4 ticket maximum per person (for individual tickets) for the entire tournament. One person can buy two tickets for 2 different days. Or a group of 4 can purchase 4 tickets for one day. But if that same group of 4 wants to go on two different days, they will need two people and 2 credit cards to make the purchase.
  • Rounds – the first round is 3 days of tennis, all other rounds are 2 days (except the finals)
  • Grounds Pass: Courts 3-18. If you are able to attend Roland Garros during the first week of main draw play, a grounds pass can be a great value. In a tournament jam-packed with 128 players per singles draw, pros ranked as high as the top ten may play their first round or two on the outer courts.
  • Showing ID – you MUST show a photo ID that exactly matches the name on your ticket. Read the ticket guidelines carefully, as you may be required to bring your passport to the grounds.
  • The Legends Trophy is a highlight of the French Open. It hosts history’s tennis greats in a fun and less competitive atmosphere. If you’ve never seen your favorite players when there is slightly less pressure at stake, it is a blast to see them let their guard down and play with each other and the audience.

  1. Question from a first time attendee: I’m a huge Rafa fan and my mom and I are coming in from the states because we’ve never seen Rafa play live on clay. I will be there in the first week, hoping to see his second round match (so, a very good chance he will still be in). I don’t want to buy our tickets until a couple days out to ensure we will see him play.

    Will we have issue buying tickets that close and/or paying a lot more? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

    • Hi Emily!!! Great question. It all depends on who is playing and how well they’re doing going into the tournament. If Rafa is flying through the clay season (Rome, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Madrid) like he did last year and it looks like he’s on his way to win #12, and Djok, Fed are both playing….then of course tickets are going to be harder and more expensive to get. However, if anyone drops out or gets injured (G-d forbid!), then tickets will easier and less expensive to get. My advice (and there’s no guarantee) is to evaluate after Barcelona and before Rome.

  2. Hello,

    On March 20, 2019, I bought 2 tickets (1 on Suzanne Lenglen court & 1 on the new Simonne Mathieu court) because I couldn’t decide which stadium would be better. All tickets for Philippe court were sold out for this day (and the 2 days after wee 400 euros each) once I got to my place in the queue 🙁 I don’t know if it makes sense to keep both of these tickets to have access to more matches, or if I should sell one. Are these seats OK? I don’t mind sitting in the sun, a chair with a backrest is preferred but I can sit on benches if necessary. I haven’t heard much about the new court (Simonne Mathieu). This is my first time at the French open and I’m a big tennis fan, I happen to be in Paris during the tournament.

    Court Simonne Mathieu – Access M5 – Row 2
    Court Suzanne-Lenglen – Access L6 – Row 26

    Any advice?? Thank you for your help!

    • Update 2019: Hope you had as much fun at Roland Garros as we did! For anyone else reading this, I would NOT recommend buying tickets for two show courts at the same time. You’ll miss half of each the matches, and since they don’t let you enter during play, sometimes even for a 2 sets at a time, you’ll miss so much action.

      All three show courts have proper seats with backs and we have added seating maps for all of Roland Garros above, as well as pictures of all three show courts on our Tips for Attending Roland Garros page.

      Hi Zenia:
      That’s a really good question. I can’t speak to your specific seats, because the seating charts don’t show “Access” as you have them listed. However, I can tell you the shadiest parts of both stadiums are the South and West sides. It’s unfortunate you won’t know who is playing which courts until it’s too late to sell the other ticket, so you’ll have to make that decision for yourself. There’s really no way to make a recommendation either way. Enjoy RG!!!!!!!

  3. Hola, estoy por sacar boletos para semifinales….me recomendas sacarlo ya antes que sigan aumentando, o esperar mas a la fecha, gracias.

    • Hi Esteban: Running this through a Spanish Translator (thanks, Google!), I believe the question is “Hello, I am about to get tickets for the semifinals …. you recommend me to get it out before they continue to increase, or wait until now, thanks.”

      If you want to go, buy tickets. I assume you are asking about pricing and whether you should wait. Prices will increase until the event, assuming there is less availability as tickets sell, which is likely. However, if you wait until the tournament and the big players are not playing for whatever reason, like Rafa, then prices will go down. No matter how you approach buying tickets, it’s a gamble and you’ll never have a precise answer.
