The French Open, or the Roland Garros as it's more commonly known, is one of the tennis world's elite events. The tournament attracts all the top seeds who come to defend existing titles or aim for new records, and at Hotel Sophie Germain you'll enjoy easy access to the stadium by taxi or metro.
Roland Garros – a unique setting for a world class event
The stadium is named after French national hero and First World War aviator, Roland Garros and the French Open tennis tournament has been affectionately referred to by the same name for many decades. Its red clay courts are among the most recognisable tournament settings, and as well as the main three arenas the Roland Garros has a further 17 tennis courts, a separate press and media area, a restaurant and bar complex and its own museum. The Tenniseum is well worth visiting when you're at the Roland Garros, and the museum covers every aspect of the sport in a series of bi-lingual exhibits and features.
The French Open has been played since as far back as 1891, and in its current setting since 1928. Once the preserve of French players, the Roland Garros is now open to top tennis stars from all over the world and is split into several events and heats. As well as the popular men's and women's singles matches you can get tickets for the ladies and men's doubles and mixed doubles events, allowing you to see some of the sport's most exciting pairings.
