Roland-Garros Kids' Day
-

SATURDAY 21 MAY

The sun was shining bright for this yearly charity event, which is held on the Saturday before the tournament officially kicks off. Spectators were treated to an exceptional and unforgettable programme of entertainment. All profits were donated to associations that work with disadvantaged children.

Roland-Garros visitors got a chance to see some of the circuit’s top players – current and retired – have a blast playing some spectacular tennis in singles and doubles. A special umpire/line judge activity gave a few youngsters (and young-at-heart fans) an inside look at what the job is all about. The seven best performers were selected to officiate a match on Philippe-Chatrier Court and Suzanne-Lenglen Court.

Visitors could also attend the girls’ and boys’ finals for the “Rendez-vous à Roland-Garros” operation, which featured young players from around the world: Japan, China, South Korea, India and Brazil. A number of other activities were on offer around the grounds and at the RG LAB, where visitors could challenge the RG Robot, which debuted Saturday 21 May.
