| French Open
This illustrious Grand Slam event, also known as the Internationaux de France (or simply Roland-Garros, after the sports complex in western Paris where the tournament is held), draws top international players to Europe every year in late May and early June for two weeks of intense competition on red-clay courts. Millions of Euros in prize money are at stake, with singles and doubles tournaments for both men and women. Coveted tickets to the French Open are sold online or by mail, with booking requests accepted from mid-November through mid-February, and reserved seats for specific matches allocated by lottery. Tickets also may be obtained in conjunction with travel packages offered by our tournament partner Grand Slam Tennis Tours. The Roland-Garros Stadium, at the southern end of the vast Bois de Boulogne park in the city's 16th arrondissement, is easily accessible by subway and offers a full complement of services including restaurants, snack vendors, currency exchange, a post office and the Tenniseum, a year-round museum of tennis history.
