Ticket prices, access to the courts, entertainment: here's everything you need to know before heading to the Porte d'Auteuil tournament.
Roland-Garros resumes its rights. A little more than 600,000 spectators are expected at Porte d'Auteuil this year. And for this 2023 edition, several changes have been made concerning the reception of the public and the organization. The Grand Slam, scheduled to take place from May 22 to June 11, will begin with the traditional qualifying week where lower-ranked players will try to qualify for the main draw. It will take place from 22 to 26 May inclusive and will present some novelties for the public.

During this week, the public will have access to the entire complex for the first time to fully enjoy Roland-Garros. Spectators will be able to come and cheer on the players on the annex courts, where these qualifications will be held. But new for this 2023 edition, they will also be able to go to the center court, the Philippe-Chatrier, every day from 13 p.m. to 19 p.m. to attend the training of the best players such as Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz or Rafael Nadal. Also during this week, a preferential rate of 10 euros is available for young people under 25 years old. Here are the different seat rates, subject to availability.

Yannick Noah Day
Between the end of qualifying (Friday, May 26) and the start of the main draw (Sunday, May 28), a special "Yannick Noah" day will be held at Roland-Garros. Exceptionally this year, Saturday, May 27 will be dedicated to the former tennis player: on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of his victory (June 5, 1983), spectators will be able to enjoy many animations and attend exhibition matches. Yannick Noah will then be celebrated in the afternoon on Court Philippe-Chatrier.
Another novelty for the Roland-Garros public this year, the high stands of the Simonne-Mathieu court will now be open to all ticket holders, including people with only access to the annex courts. This represents 2,000 places in free access. Spectators will be able to attend the matches on this court within the limit of available places. The lower stands will be exclusively reserved for ticket holders for Court Simonne-Mathieu.

The organizers of Roland-Garros wanted to reinforce the "festive" side of the fortnight. And on this occasion, a new appointment is proposed to the public during the "night sessions", these evening matches on the Philippe-Chatrier court. Entitled "Before", a new and live show will be offered to the public before the players enter the court. This year, the start of the ten evening sessions, scheduled from Monday, May 29 to Wednesday, June 7, will begin at 20:30 p.m., half an hour earlier than last year.
Finally, the finals of the women's singles (Saturday, June 10) and men's singles (Sunday, June 11) will benefit this year from an opening ceremony to the delight of spectators. Roland-Garros has not yet unveiled the official content of this ceremony but the show should be guaranteed for the public of the Porte d'Auteuil!
