Throughout the competition, participants in the French Open tennis tournament must stay in one of two hotels reserved by the organizers: the Pullman Tour Eiffel or the Novotel Paris centre tour Eiffel.
For the 2021 edition of the French Open tennis tournament, which began on Monday, May 24, players are required to stay in one of the two partner hotels of the competition, the Pullman Tour Eiffel and the Novotel Paris centre tour Eiffel, until the end of the tournament on June 13.
Indeed, the participants of the Paris Grand Slam will have to stay in two hotels in the capital in order to minimize the risks of infection with Covid-19. This decision of the French Tennis Federation (FFT) follows the controversy that took place during the US Open when the player Benoît Paire was excluded because of a positive PCR test.
If some of the French players live in Paris or in the Paris region, they will not be allowed to sleep at home, and their companions (two people for singles players, one person for doubles players) either. Players will only be allowed to practice on the courts on match days.
