Experience the French Open with Royal Monceau Raffles Paris

Calling all tennis fans. The French Open tennis tournament—also known as Roland-Garros as it takes place at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris—is a not-to-miss event on the sporting calendar. Staged over a two-week period in May and June, the French Open is the world’s top clay court tennis championship—and it makes for a thrilling experience for spectators, as the court stadiums are intimate in size. Sacred traditions for ticket-holders include indulging in magnificent lunchtime feasts, donning the signature Panama hats, and then—bien sûr—there’s the champagne.

This year’s tournament—with Roger Federer recently stating that he’s not playing any ATP tour events before the French Open—promises to be one to remember.
