How to Book French Open Tennis Tours
Often, tennis tourists try to book their tournament tickets as a part of a package that consists of not just the tennis tickets but also the peripherals around it. And when we say peripherals, we mean travel tickets (flight, train), pick-up and drop from and to the airport, hotel bookings and other experiences like city tours, walks and meet and greet opportunities with tennis players.
It’s not too different with the French Open and their tennis tours which are operated by a plethora of tour operators and offer some exciting – but premium – deals for French Open patrons.
For instance, a tennis tour operator packs a five-day tour that includes the first day in which the guests are welcomed to a fancy hotel and with a Parisian meal to boot, have three days spent at Roland-Garros for tennis action before the fifth day is spent on a city tour. The cheapest package here is $3650.
Another such French Open tour costs $4400, with a two-day access to the Philippe Chatrier Court, while a five-day package on the same website costs $9870 per person for the women’s and men’s semi-finals and the women’s final.
There’s a third website that sells even two-night French Open package for the opening round matches and a stay in a three-start hotel in Paris starting at a rather reasonable $895 while a five-night package with that very tour operator costs $2595 but includes just the opening round matches.
Fine hotel stays, first class match-day experiences, access to open bars and restaurants second to none, road-trip planning and concierge escorting and personalisation if any, needed by the patrons of these French Open tennis packages.

Helpful Tips for Paris during the French Open
Paris can leave any visitor flustered when it comes to finding your way from one place to another. So keeping that in mind, we would like to help anyone looking to go to the event with all the information about how to get to the stadium with different modes of transport, or even how you can buy or sell tickets for the tournament.
Get Your French Open Tickets for 2020 Right
Firstly, let’s talk about the tickets, for without them, you won’t be seeing anyone play, let alone the best players. Once you book your tickets online, you will have to wait a few weeks before the match-day to receive an email with a link to the e-ticket. Roland Garros asks you to assign and print the name of all ticket holders on it, and you have until midnight on the previous day to do so. It is better not to immediately print the names in case of unforeseen drop outs from the plan.
How to Travel to Roland Garros?
Now that you know how to handle your ticket, it is time to take a look at the different ways in which you can get to the arena.
The best way to move around in Paris is the Metro system. The sophisticated system makes for convenient move-about in the city. Below are the two stations nearest to Roland Garros.
Line 9 – You can get on or off at the Michel-Ange Auteuil station or Michel-Ange Molitor station.
Line 10 – You can get on or off at the Porte d’Auteuil, Boulogne Jean-Jaurès or Pont de Saint-Cloud.
The stations are a 10-minute walk away from the venue. It is vital to buy your return ticket before you leave for Roland Garros if you want to avoid the queues at the end of day.
Note that you will face a fair bit of crowd at the end of day; so you might want to walk a bit farther to the Michel-Anger Molitor station, which is less crowded than others.
You can make use of a free app called Paris Metro, which guide you in terms of the Metro routes.
You can also travel to the stadium by bus, should you prefer that over the Metro. Listed below are the bus stations nearest to the stadium. You can check and see which station is the best one to get off at;
No.22 – Michel-Ange Auteuil
No.32 – Last stop Porte d’Auteuil
No.52 – Porte d’Auteuil or La Tourelle
No.62 – Porte de Saint-Cloud
No.72 – La tourelle
No.123 – Porte d’Auteuil or Porte Molitor
No.241 – Porte d’Auteuil or Gambetta
No.260 – Gambetta
Other than these public transport systems, you can also choose to commute by bike, your own car, shuttles or a taxi service.
Eiffel Tower to Roland-Garros (or back!)
Just for reference, check out how far the Eiffel Tower is from Roland Garros and how you can travel to and fro.
The Eiffel Tower is about four kilometers away from the stadium. The recommended option is to take the bus from the Eiffel Tower to Javel and then take the subway from Javel-André-Citroën to Porte d’Auteuil.
If you do not mind a bit of leisurely walk, you can catch a bus on the Line 32- Le Notre station to La Tourelle. From La Tourelle, Roland Garros is a 10 minute walk.
You can also take a direct train from lena to Exelmans, which runs every five minutes every day.
The Stadium and Entry
Now that you know how to get to Roland Garros, it is time to make sure you have all the timings correct and also all the required items for you to gain entry. You are required to pass through one of three Mandatory Checkpoints to enter the arena and hence the stadium entrances. There is no direct access to the stadium entrances.
The gates of the stadium are opened at 10 am daily. If you plan on being present from the very first match of the day, it is better if you arrive early and wait for a bit.
The crowds will start gathering as you get closer to the opening time. Once you are inside, you quickly realise the place is huge. It can be quite confusing to navigate your way through the arena. To avoid any delays, you can simply download the Roland Garros app on Play Store and App Store, which will help you find your way around.
But before you leave for the stadium, you need to check and make sure you have all the necessary documents on your person.
- Valid Passport as ID (note that UK drivers’ licences are not accepted)
- The tickets with all the correct names printed on them (or a virtual copy on the Spectator app)
Also keep in mind that although bags are allowed, you cannot carry big backpacks, selfie sticks and other metal containers and items, or even strollers inside. You can pack yourself a lunch from home if needed since outside food is permitted. You can also carry water with you as long as it is not more than 1.5 litres.
So now that you have all the information you could need, it is time you started planning your trip to Paris for Roland Garros 2020.

Here’s a list of things to do in Paris during the French Open if you are visiting the city for this second Grand Slam of the year.
Player List for the 2020 French Open
One of the reasons to lay your hands on these tickets, especially the French Open final tickets is because it promises to be one of the best tournaments in recent times. Rafael Nadal will be aiming for his 13th title at Roland-Garros while Novak Djokovic is aiming to become the first ever man to win two titles at each of the majors.
Roger Federer has confirmed his participation for the 2020 French Open as well, along with some of the other usual suspects like Juan Martin del Potro, Alexander Zverev and last year’s runner-up Dominic Thiem. The exact player list will be revealed later.
The women’s section of the French Open draw will see Ash Barty kick-start the tournament as the defending champions. If you are a women’s tennis fan and have the tickets for the French Open, you can look at watching the likes of Simona Halep, two-time Grand Slam winner Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams, Karolina Pliskova, Garbine Muguruza, Petra Kvitova and Elina Svitolina among others.
Fans would obviously hope for Nadal to remain fit following a run of 15 months in which has retired or withdrawn from multiple tournaments. However, his best performances have come on clay and that should be inspiration enough for him to continue playing on the red dirt.
What Happened at the 2019 French Open?
Rafael Nadal won a whopping 12th men’s singles French Open title when he defeated Dominic Thiem in the final yet again. This time though, the Austrian managed to push the Spaniard to a fourth set before Nadal clinched that title.
The women’s singles title was won by Ash Barty of Australia who later claimed the world number one ranking from Naomi Osaka. Barty defeated the first-timer Marketa Vondrousova in the final, 6-1, 6-3. Barty became the first Aussie to lift the title at Roland-Garros in 46 years, while Vondroušová achieved a distinction of becoming the first teenager to make it to the women’s singles final in 12 years.
Some of the other prominent results went as follows:
Thiem defeated top-seeded Novak Djokovic in five sets in the semi-final to prevent him from holding all four Grand Slam titles at the same time, while Nadal crushed Roger Federer in the other semi-final. This was also the first time in years that all the top four seeds at the French Open had made the semi-finals.
Alexander Zverev, Karen Khachanov, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori were the other quarterfinalists in the tournament.
Amanda Anisimova stretched Ash Barty in the women’s singles semi-final before going down in a three-setter while Vondrousova sent Johanna Konta packing in the other one. Madison Keys, defending champion Simona Halep, Sloane Stephens and Petra Martic were the other quarter-finalists.
Serena Williams was sent out in the third round of the tournament by Sofia Kenin.
This was after Nadal and Halep won the men’s and women’s singles titles at the 2018 French Open.
Nadal defeated first time finalist Dominic Thiem in the final, taming the Austrian 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 to add another title to his ever expansive list. Halep needed three sets and overcame the loss of the first set to edge out Sloane Stephens in the final to bag her first ever Grand Slam title.
