Paris under the yellow and ochre colors
Posted in Paris le
From May 22 to June 11, Paris will abandon its traditional red and blue colors for the vibrant ochre and yellow of the Roland Garros clay courts. The most prestigious international men's and women's tennis tournament will open its doors, mixing tradition and innovation. Let the team at the Auteuil Tour Eiffel Hotel convince you to attend too!
Why Roland Garros?
Even the most knowledgeable and passionate will hesitate as there are so many answers to this question! Some will tell you about all the champions who made the legend of Roland Garros, from the Musketeers and Suzanne Lenglen, almost a century ago, to the very recent sovereigns: the Williams sisters and Rafael Nadal. Others will evoke the intense moments that made the public choke with emotion, Yannick Noah's victory in 1983, Chang's incredible spoon serve against Lendl in 1989, the interminable and suffocating semi-final between Nadal and Djokovic in 2013... Epicureans will talk about the sweetness of aperitifs on the deckchairs between two matches and others about the excitement of crossing paths with stars in the stadium. Finally, everyone will undoubtedly talk about the spirit of Roland Garros, a mixture of elegance, sporting commitment, fair play and a touch of humor. So many reasons to taste it and to find the most convincing arguments yourself!
Roland Garros evolves
Traditions live on and are respectfully maintained in the Porte d'Auteuil stadium. But this does not prevent the tournament and its organizers from constantly adapting it to better meet the expectations of our time. Thus, the tournament is resolutely more inclusive. Solidarity day, reduced-price tickets for young people, the possibility of occupying the best seats before the arrival of ticket holders, matches played at night, many steps have been taken to allow the widest possible audience to enjoy the show and open up to tennis. Roland Garros has also shown an ever stronger commitment to the environment. To reduce its carbon footprint, there are no small gestures, just gestures that count. Electric shuttles, cycling routes from the center of Paris, waste recycling, elimination of single-use products, choice of food from short circuits, installation of photovoltaic panels, you can discover on site many initiatives to make the event cleaner. Each year, Roland Garros adds a new stone to the building, always with a view to excellence.
A twenty-minute walk from the Auteuil Tour Eiffel hotel, the Roland Garros Stadium will be ablaze for three weeks, from May 22 to June 11. Tickets are in high demand, especially for the final four matches. Remember to book as soon as possible on the website of the event. You will also discover all the activities surrounding the sporting event.
