About Tennis

A sport that has been around since the Middle Ages, tennis has now evolved into a truly high profile international sport with the top players some of the highest profile sportsmen and women in the world.

Tennis was included in the Olympic schedule from 1896 to 1924 before a 60 year break saw it return as a demonstration sport at Los Angeles Games 1984 and was officially reinstated as an Olympic sport four years later on Seoul.

With 42 medals, Great Britain has won more Olympic tennis medals than any other nation, including Andy Murray’s gold medal victory over Roger Federer in the final of the men’s singles at London 2012.
