2022 promises to be a great vintage for the French Open at the Stade Roland Garros! After two years marked by pandemic-related health restrictions, the world’s greatest clay court tennis tournament will regain its festive atmosphere and its spectators. While preserving the traditions that give it so much character and charm, the French Open this year unveils great new features that bring it into step with the times.

A more inclusive and greener tournament
The tournament organisers have made numerous commitments this year. Firstly, the event is striving to be more inclusive, offering tickets at €10 for people under 25 and offering more than 2,400 tickets to various associations. Then, it will ensure that all the players can share the spotlight by presenting the June 3rdfinals of the wheelchair tennis tournament on the centre court. Finally, many green initiatives have been launched, including appropriately origin-labelled seasonal food products sourced via short supply chains, the use of 100% renewable energy, incentives to recycle placed throughout the site, and more.

From May 21st, the matches of the main event are contested, with some taking place at night thanks to the new lighting system installed on the Philippe Chatrier court. Finally, the women’s and men’s finals on June 4thand 5thend the 2022 edition in style. Please note that places are in high demand, especially for the finals. Book yours ASAP!
