Shuttle buses are also available for the duration of the tourmanent to transport ticketed passengers to and from the stadium.
What should I wear?
Casual wear and comfortable shoes. Take clothing suitable for all conditions and don’t forget a hat, sunglasses but also waterproofs.
May I bring food into the Stadium?
Yes, and you should of course, because food in the stadium is overpriced and lacks variety. You’ll also avoid queues. There are lots of bakeries and supermarket nearby, where you can buy sandwiches, drinks…
May I bring my camera?
Yes, sure. But camera tripods and camera lenses of more than 20 cm are not allowed.
What happens if it rains?
Roland Garros doesn’t have any courts with roofs, so when it rains, play stops. There isn’t a lot of covered space to hide. To kill time you could visit the museum, or take part in the activities at the RG LAB. If play has lasted less than two hours over the entire day, you may be eligible for a refund.
Where to find the schedule of play?
The schedule of play is released each evening and is posted on the official website as soon as it is made available. It is also displayed next to the big screens on Court Suzanne Lenglen and Court number 1. Grab a free copy of the daily Roland Garros newspaper and have a look at who is playing where.
Who was Roland Garros?
Not a tennis player, but a French national hero who perished in World War I. Roland Garros was a pioneer aviator who made the first solo flight across the Mediterranean Sea. He was killed in aerial combat in 1918.
