How to See the French Open for 20 Euro'sIf you're looking for a way to get into the French Open, see Rafa up close at the main stadium and get a ticket to a Grand Slam event for around 20 Euro's, here's how I did it a few years ago! The best time to see lots of the top players in action is this upcoming opening weekend, before any top seeds have been eliminated.
The Roland Garros children's day, formerly known as Benny Berthet Day, was first held back in 1977 and is a highly enjoyable event which raises money for good causes. This year it will be held on 26 May. Top players who will be at the tournament take part in one-set exhibition matches on the three show courts (Philippe Chatrier, Suzanne Lenglen and No.1). It is very much a dress rehearsal, with umpires and ball-kids, and it is a wonderful opportunity for fans to come and watch their favourite players whilst helping those less fortunate at the same time.
