The French Open is one of four Grand Slam tennis tournaments. After the success of 2022, it is time for Roland-Garros to move on to the next edition, which will take place from May 22nd until June 11th. According to their official website, In 2023, there will be plenty of exciting tennis in store, with no fewer than 20 events and 891 matches on the card at Roland-Garros Stadium.
This year Roland-Garros Opening Week will offer spectators a special experience. As well as cheering on their favorite players running for the title, there will be a host of events and activities laid on for them too and they will have the privilege of watching the world’s leading players practice on Philippe-Chatrier court every day from 1 pm to 7 pm.
At the 2023 tournament, all spectators, whatever kind of ticket they have, will be able to access the upper stands on Simonne-Mathieu court, where they can sit in any available seat. “There will be around 2000 seats and it will help people enjoy their experience here, said the Tournament Director, I am really looking forward to seeing how it goes, the idea is still to make sure fans have a great time and live a unique experience”.
The organizers also communicated that the traditional night sessions slated between May 29th and June 7th on the Philippe Chatrier court are being brought forward. The game will start at 8:30 pm, half an hour earlier than last year: “The night session will start at 8 pm and will be a little more festive than the traditional daily Roland-Garros. There will be an interactive show with the crowd, we are trying to offer something really special for this unique match”.
The Parisian Grand Slam has adopted a sustainable approach. At the 2023 tournament, its actions will be centered around three cornerstones: inclusion and solidarity, protecting the environment, and raising spectator awareness.
