Access to the tournament area

The main entrance to the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell - Trofeo Conde de Godó tennis courts is located at the confluence of Bosch i Gimpera and Marqués de Mulhacén streets. The ticket office is also located there, near the "Welcome Office", next to the official transport and the accreditation zone.

Courts 1, 2 and 3

The Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell unites Court 1 & 2 of the Real Club Tennis Barcelona to create the tournament’s Pista 1 (Court No. 1). In this way, the tournament meets the expectation that all important matches are held in front of a big crowd. Court No. 1 seats up to 2,000 people.

In total, the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona 1899 has four tennis courts for the tournament. Courts 2 and 3 can seat over 500 people. Seven more courts are reserved for different services. Two are used to implement the stands of the Center Court (Pista Central) and are used for the VIP Village.

There are two big scoreboards: on the Center Court and for courts 1, 2 and 3.

The Center Court, better known as the 'Talisman Court' and Pista Central, has been reconstructed in 2007, increasing the total capacity by 800 places. In 2012, new stands were implemented seating up to 8,400 spectators.
