Tennis competitions at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara will be held from October 17 to October 22 at the Telcel Tennis Complex. The draw for the events was conducted on October 16, 2011.[1]

The event is part of the qualification criteria for the tennis tournament at the 2012 Summer Olympics. The winners of the five competitions will have priority entrance into the tennis event, if they are not directly qualified and are near the top 56 in the world. The players must also be from a Country that has not filled its four player quota.[1]

The mixed doubles event is being held for the first time since the 1995 Pan American Games in Mar del Plata, because the event was added to the tennis program of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Great Britain.[2]
