Roland-Garros regains its rights. Just over 600,000 spectators are expected at Porte d’Auteuil this year. And for this 2023 edition, several changes have been made regarding the reception of the public and the organization. The Grand Slam, due to be held 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. This will take place from May 22 to 26 inclusive and will present some new features for the public.
During this week, the public will for the first time have access to the entire complex in order to fully enjoy Roland-Garros. Spectators will be able to come and encourage the players on the adjoining courts, where these qualifications will be held. But new for this 2023 edition, they will also be able to go to the central court, the Philippe-Chatrier, every day from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. to attend the training sessions of the best players such as Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz or even 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 prices, 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 numerous activities and attend exhibition matches . Yannick Noah will then be celebrated in the afternoon on the Philippe-Chatrier court.
Another novelty for the public at Roland-Garros this year, the upper stands of the Simonne-Mathieu court will now be open to all ticket holders, including people who only have access to the adjoining courts. This represents 2,000 places with free access. Spectators will be able to attend matches on this court within the limits of available seats. The lower stands will be exclusively reserved for holders of tickets for the Simonne-Mathieu court.
The organizers of Roland-Garros wanted to reinforce the “festive” side of the fortnight. And on this occasion, a new appointment is offered to the public during the “nights sessions”, these evening matches on the Philippe-Chatrier court. Entitled “Before”, a unique 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 8:30 p.m., half an hour earlier than last year.
Finally, the ladies’ singles finals (Saturday June 10) and men’s singles (Sunday June 11) will this year benefit from an opening ceremony to the delight of the spectators. Roland-Garros has not yet revealed the official content of this ceremony but the spectacle should be guaranteed for the public at the Porte d’Auteuil!
