Sorry for making the thread here :p

I have a question to people who have bought RG tickets, I'm looking at going to Paris next year and i just found a really good flight deal. What im wondering is, i read the tickets are alloted by a lottery, are there chances of not getting tickets for the first three days? I am looking at getting Chatrier on Sunday (shouldnt Masha be on as defending champ? :scratch) and court 1 for monday and tuesday. I kinda remember here being a bunch of empty seats on chatrier on sundays :lol:

Thanks in advance, hope I made sense :p

Bought my tickets there last year. Expensive but I didn't have any problems.

No idea about the lottery/ballot thing but I do know that tickets go on public sale on the 13th of February from here: http://rolandgarros.fft-tickets.com/uk but they do sell fast so it's important to be online and already have your account ready for the morning they go on sale :)

I'll be ordering mine at 00:01, I really hope I do get some tickets for the show courts.

^ Thanks ;) that site doesn't say anything about a lottery, I was reading that somewhere, must have been an old post. So now it seems like they go on sale on an announced day and its on a first come first serve basis?

Pretty much although I haven't bought tickets since 2010 so I imagine the demand will be much higher nowadays so I stress the importance of buying them literally as soon as they go on sale.

Yes - pretty much. I've found they tend to sell out pretty quickly but even if you don't get them as soon as they go on sale, keep checking on viagogo.com (official ticket exchange partner of RG) and you're in with a very good chance of picking up tickets for the days you want to go. I went for three days this year and I was able to pick up ground passes for the two days I couldn't get through the RG website.

Sales open on 13th Feb, apparently ;)

Tickets will only be available at 9 or 10 am, I think ;)

This. These resale tickets usually cost about 10 to 20 euros more though, but if you're willing to pay... ;)

Yes, you should. If you use Viagogo though, make sure you monitor the website closely because tickets often get snapped up quickly ;)

This year tickets went on sale at 6am CET.

Tickets for Chatrier and Lenglen will sell out fairly fast, most of them will probably be gone around midday. Court 1 tickets and outside courts tickets will take longer to sell out, with the exception being the first Sunday those tickets will also sell out fast.

I also have good experiences with viagogo, bought and sold tickets through that site. The advantage is tickets are being resold at face value.

I've pre-ordered several iPhones & iPads over the years so I'm used to rushing online orders :lol:

I'm looking to get tickets for the first week (something like Monday - Wednesday) and those should hopefully be easier to come by than for the later days.

I want court 1 tickets for the first three days. Do you think they'll sell out this fast as well? And is it possible to order 3x3 tickets for the three seperate days at once? I've been too late with ordering the last couple of years (luckily I could get some through my club) but this year I want to go with two of my friends so I really really want to have these tickets.

In 2011 I bought tickets at the end of the first day they went on sale and only outside courts tickets were available. I later bought court 1 tickets through the viagogo site. Tickets for the opening Sunday will sell out fast, fewer matches are played on that day so less tickets are available. Since you really want tickets for those days/court I'd try and order them on the day they go on sale.

There are limits for the amuount of tickets you can order per account. If you want 3x3 for court 1 it's best each of you order 3 tickets for one of those days.

For the show courts: a total of 4 tickets over the entire tournament.
Important: since the 2nd, 3rd, 8th and 10th June are the busiest days, orders made for these dates will be limited to 2 tickets. Therefore, if you buy 2 tickets for Friday 8th June, you will not be able to buy any more tickets for the 2nd, 3rd or 10th June.

For the outside courts: up to 4 tickets per day, with a maximum of 12 tickets over the entire tournament.

I went this year it was amazing :) Tickets are released early next year I believe. You must queue and buy them from the FFT website. Alternatively, you can buy many tickets from the resale website.

Wow, thanks so much for all of this :) I will tell my friends to each make their own account and line up as soon as the tickets go on sale. This topic already made me excited for the clay court season. Hopefully the weather in the first week will be as good as it was this year.

PS does anyone have good tips for hostels/cheap hostels somewhat close to the grounds?

Tickets for court 1 are numbered, so it's best to assign a day to each of you and your friends so you'll have seats that are located next to each other. I had the cheapest tickets for court 1 and was quite pleased with the view. It's a great little court to watch tennis.

Oh ofcourse! I just remembered they were numbered seats. Thanks for the reminder. I love court 1. There's too many French on Chatrier, and usually court 1 hosts my favourite players. I think it's the best court to be in the first two rounds. :)
