Traveler & Travel Advisor Reviews: 4.9 out of 5 stars  

Roland Garros Stadium

Stade Roland Garros (or Roland Garros Stadium for us anglophones) was named after the famous French pilot who fought during World War I, and was the first pilot to fly solo over the Mediterranean Sea. This impressive 21-acre facility is home to twenty courts as well as a large restaurant and bar complex among other things. Although Roland Garros is famous for its ‘red clay’ courts, the surface is actually white limestone covered with red brick dust, a solution to the poor drainage issues resulting from natural clay courts.

Home to the French Open, the complex was completed in 1928. Roland Garros has two main courts. Court Philippe Chatrier has the largest seating capacity (15,225) and hosts the final matches. Court Suzanne Lenglen has a seating capacity of 10,068 and hosts many of the top-seed matches in the tournament.
