Are tickets refunded if it rains for part of the day?

It will not have escaped anyone living in the Paris region that this Tuesday is a very bad day in terms of weather. A desperate gray ceiling for the end of May settled in the sky, as solid as Zverev when breaking Nadal to return to 5-4 in the second set on Monday. And at Roland-Garros, lousy weather means exit tarpaulins.

Except – obviously – on the Philippe-Chatrier and the Suzanne-Lengen, which have a roof, the matches supposed to start at 11 a.m. have not yet been able to start. A first postponement at noon, then at 1 p.m., then at 2 p.m.… The organizers are navigating on sight and it seems more and more certain that all the matches at the end of the first round will not be able to be played before the end of the day .

The spectators are patient. With one question in mind, probably: can we get our tickets refunded if it doesn’t work, or very little?

On this point, the tournament regulations are clear: “Tickets giving access to the Simonne-Matthieu court as well as the annex courts benefit from a guarantee included in the price of their ticket. If the playing time of the day is less than 2 hours due to bad weather, the buyer will be refunded the purchase price of their ticket. »

So we’ll see if the two-hour mark has passed or not. In 2016, during an edition of grim memory from a meteorological point of view, this rule was the Source of a controversy. On the first Tuesday (already), the playing time on the Central, not covered at the time, was… 2h01. Obviously, many spectators complained, believing that the organization had played just enough to avoid having to reimburse. “The referee decides alone, in complete independence, on stopping and resuming the games. Sport always comes first,” replied director Guy Forget.
