Tennis was a part of the original modern Olympics that were started in 1896. Tennis was an Olympic sport until after the 1924 Olympics when it was dropped. Tennis, again, became an Olympic sport beginning with the 1988 Olympics.
Tennis was an event at the first modern Olympics in 1896 and was competed at every Olympics until 1924. Tennis was dropped after the 1924 Games and did not make its return until 1984 as a demonstration sport and 1988 as a medal sport.
Tennis Mixed Double
Tennis was dropped after the 1924 Olympics mainly because the adminstrators could not agree on the issue of defining what an amateur was and what a professional was. Back in those days on amateurs were allowed to participate in the Olympics. Tennis returned as a medal sport in the Olympics at the 1988 Games in Seoul.
Tennis was removed from the summer Olympics in 1924. The argument was that Tennis does not uphold the Olympic ideals. Having said this, it is also argued that Tennis does not rightly belong in the Olympics because the Tennis players who do qualify for the Olympics find other tournaments and Grand Slams more of a goal and gaining prize money then winning a gold medal in the Olympics. -Thomas Wren
Tennis was an event at the first Modern Olympics in 1896. It was contested every Olympics until 1924. It was then dropped from the Games and did not return as a medal event until 1988.
Yes. Tennis was a sport at the first modern Olympics in 1896 until 1924 when it was discontinued. It made its return to the Olympics in 1984 and has been contested ever since.
It was dropped when the International Tennis Federation and the International Olympic Committee had a dispute over allowing amateurs to compete.
The first female athlete to represent India in the Olympics was an N. Polley who competed in tennis at the 1924 Games in Paris.
Following the 1924 Olympics, after 28 years of Olympic tennis, the International Olympics Commitee (IOC) and the International Tennis Federation came into conflict over the participation of "professional" players. IOC restrictions on players employed by newspapers was one of the more onerous rules, and the IOC sought to limit the professional competitions held in Olympic years. As part of the overall relaxation of amateur determination between 1960 and 1984, tennis returned as a demonstration sport in 1968 and 1984, and to full status in 1988. Mixed doubles, first played at the 1924 games, returned to Olympic competition in 2012.
The 1924 Winter Olympics were hosted by Chamonix, France and the 1924 Summer Olympics were hosted by Paris, France.
No, it wasn't. Tennis started at the Olympics in 1869, when the first modern Olympic games in Athens took place. It was then dropped in 1924 due to the fact that the administrators could not agree on the issue of defining what an amateur was, an what a professional was. Back in those days, amateurs we're not allowed to compete in the Olympics, no matter how good they we're.
