The action really kicks into gear from Friday 31st May when competition enters the 3rd round of the tournament.
Where is the French Open held?
It all takes place at Stade Roland Garros (most people drop the Stade), located in the 16th arrondissement, in the south-east of the city. The event has been at this location since 1928, making it one of the oldest places for a tennis tournament in the world.
Fun fact: it’s the only one of the four majors to take place on clay.

If you’re visiting on opening week, the average price of a ticket on one of the main courts can range from €55-€130.
Happen to be there during the semis or finals and expect a ticket to be anywhere between €240-€495.
