Court 18 will be the largest of the annex courts and will host major matches in the Men's and Women's Singles in the first week as well as some Junior/Wheelchair Finals (TBC) during the second week. It is located near an ice cream outlet, a water fountain and restaurants, shops, and a giant screen.
The average length of attendance at Roland-Garros exceeds 8 hours. The Roland-Garros mobile app gives visitors a personal and experiential journey throughout the day, both before their arrival and while they are at the stadium. So keeping their cell phone batteries charged is a real concern for tennis fans. Many visitors go back and forth between their seats and mobile charging stations at the expense of getting the full experience.
