The Rouen Open is an indoor clay WTA 250 competition that takes place in Rouen, France. Sometimes, this tournament is called the Open Capfinances Rouen Métropole for sponsorship purposes.

Initially, the tournament was a WTA 125 competition held in 2022 and 2023. However, the tournament was upgraded to a 250-level event for the first time in 2024. Following its 2024 upgrade, the Rouen Open will feature a 32-player singles draw.

In addition, a 16-team doubles tournament will run across the one-week event. Many highly ranked players are expected to take part in the future Rouen Open editions as a WTA 250 competition. In previous years, when the competition was at the 125 level, several well-known women’s competitors entered the tournament.

In the inaugural event in 2022, Belgian player Maryna Zanevska won the competition after she beat Swiss opponent Viktorija Golubic in the final.

Another strong field took shape for the 2023 edition, including former world number 11,   Alize Cornet. However, Golubic returned and went one step further to win the Rouen Open title. She defeated Russian competitor Erika Andreeva in straight sets in the final.

The Rouen Open, also called Open de Ruen, is one of the latest additions to the WTA calendar, but the tournament may have a difficult time properly establishing itself, as it's held in the same week as the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany, which is one of the most popular WTA 500 tournament on the Tour.
