French Open Questions

We are trying to score some last minute tickets to the french open this year. The way our travel dates work out, we will likely be going during the 1/4 finals.

1. I can't find any policy about bringing in an infant (1 year old). Are they free to bring in to sit on lap or in stroller?

2. Which is the better court to buy tickets for?

any other tips and advice appreciated. Thanks!

also, it seems that there are no refunds for weather cancellations. Is this true?

I have self answers to my questions, in case others have the same questions

Kids under 6 sit free on lap. P.G court is the center court. Full rain outs (less than 2 hours of total play) are refunded.

I do have one more question though. Can you bring baby strollers into Roland Garros? I can't find much about this in english maybe someone who knows french could do a google search for info.

Here is a link to a list of prohibited items at RG, which appears, unfortunately, to include strollers:

Click on "Safety".

Have a wonderful time in Paris, it's a beautiful city.

I am curious about why you would want to bring a one year old to an event where periods of silence are expected repeatedly during the event. Do you think your child can do that?

There are refunds if there is a full day rainout. If they manage to get in a few matches (and they will try VERY hard to do so), then no refund.
