Best Answer

Tennis made its debut at the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896. It was played at the Olympics until 1912 and then discontinued. Tennis returned to the Olympics as a demonstration sport (no medals awarded) in 1968 and 1984 and regained full status in 1988 and has been played in each Olympics since.
