Animating, innovating, sharing!
As an official partner of Roland-Garros for the 17th consecutive year, Orange works closely with the Fédération Française de Tennis to make the French Open the most innovative of all the Grand Slams. And because innovation only makes sense if it supports your passions, we’re deploying a series of innovative services that will enable you to experience all the emotions of the 2018 tournament.
Teleport yourself to the Philippe-Chatrier court to play tennis against a hologram…
For the second consecutive year, Orange and the Fédération Française de Tennis are offering visitors an even more innovative and realistic virtual reality experience. Thanks to the high quality Orange fibre network, you can teleport yourself onto the Philippe-Chatrier court to play against your hologram opponent. In the future it will offer a new way to experience and practice your passing shot (or other sports), live and from a distance.
Try the experience live at the Roland-Garros Tennis club and on the Orange stand…
Immerse yourself in the history of the stadium through a behind-the-scenes tour…
This year, Orange is also giving you the chance to immerse yourself behind the scenes of the Roland-Garros site, in the past and as it might be in the future. While tomorrow is still evolving, two Look Around kiosks offer an immersive, fun and interactive experience today. Equipped with artificial intelligence and the latest 360 photo technologies, Look Around enables you to tour the site, access brand new places and discover its amazing story through its major architectural and historical highlights.

Edge Video Analytics
Analyse stadium attendance thanks to the intelligence of Orange’s networks
Orange and the Fédération Française de Tennis are also aiming improve public amenities during the tournament. They are testing a solution that accurately measures, in real time, the footfall in each stand of the Suzanne-Lenglen court. This innovation is possible thanks to video capture and local data processing in our network, which captures attendance. The ultimate goal is to optimise visitors’ journeys, reduce waiting times and offer better navigation around the site.
