Following on from the successful beach tennis showcase onsite at Roland Garros in 2012, the fast-paced sport of beach tennis returns with a bigger exhibition for the enjoyment of all tennis fans attending this Grand Slam tournament.

The “Roland-Garros Tennis Club”, will once again be located on Court 13 throughout all three weeks of the Grand Slam (21 May - 9 June). This entertainment area is where spectators can play beach tennis with mini-tennis on clay also set up for the younger fans.

This year, the “Les Enfants de la Terre” and “Fête le Mur” stands are located in this area, and are side-by-side with the French Tennis Federation stand, where spectators can obtain all sorts of information on tennis in France.

A friendly, fun-filled atmosphere commonly associated with all beach tennis tournaments is guaranteed so be sure to pay Court 13 a visit!
