The mixed doubles tennis tournament at the 2012 Olympic Games in London was held from 1 to 5 August on the grass courts of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon.

Tie-breaks were used for the first two sets of each match, which was the best of three sets. If the score was tied at one set all, a 'super tie-break' (the first pairing to win at least 10 points by a margin of two points) would be used.[1]

This was the first time mixed doubles was included in the Olympic tennis programme since Paris in 1924, when Hazel Wightman and Richard Williams won gold.

Matches took place between 1 and 5 August.
