Philippe Chatrier TicketsCourt Philippe Chatrier is part of the Roland Garros tennis complex in Paris, France. This venue hosts the annual French Open, a Grand Slam championship tournament that takes place at the end of May and beginning of June. Court Philippe Chatrier was built in 1928 as the centre court of the complex. It once had 15,166 seats, but seating was reduced to 14,840 to accommodate new press boxes. Originally called "Court Central", it was renamed in 2001 to honour Chatrier, a tennis player, journalist, president of the French Tennis Federation and major supporter of bringing tennis back to the Olympics. To see the players take the famous red clay court, pick up tickets to Philippe Chatrier events at StubHub.
How are the Philippe Chatrier seats arranged?Grandstands surround the court, and their four main sections are named after famous French tennis players: Brugnon, Borotra, Coach and Lacoste. The first tier, called Category 1 seating, is found in all four sections. All of the grandstands except Lacoste have two additional tiers of seating, called Category 2 and Category 3. Box seats are located in the Loge section.
How can I get to the stadium?Taking the Metro may be a good idea, as it bypasses traffic. The closest stations are Porte d'Auteuil, which is served by Line 10, and Michel-Ange-Molitor, which is served by Lines 9 and 10. Numerous buses, including the 22, 32, 52 and 62, can take you close to Roland Garros. If you prefer, you can take a taxi all the way to the stadium. To find a cab after a Philippe Chatrier game, head to the taxi stand at the corner of Robert Schuman Avenue and Auteuil Boulevard.
Can I bring a bag with me?You may bring a bag to Philippe Chatrier events as long as it holds no more than 15 litres. All bags are subject to search, and the security lines at the three points of entry to the complex's outer perimeter get quite lengthy at times. Alcohol, bottles larger than 1.5 litres, glass containers, sharp umbrellas, selfie sticks, noisemakers and strollers are not allowed.
Where can I purchase food?While you can bring your own food, keep in mind that the venue has numerous concession and snack stands. These are located all around Philippe Chatrier for quick service. If you prefer to sit down, grab a table at Le Bar Lounge or on one of the terraces.
Is there anything notable to see nearby?Sports fans can enjoy football at Parc des Princes, the home of the Paris Saint-Germain Football Club, located within walking distance of the Roland Garros complex. If you'd rather contemplate the beauty of nature, visit The Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil, a botanical garden at the southern edge of the Bois de Boulogne.
