Tennis returned to the Summer Olympic Games for the second time in 60 years at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, California, United States, but it was only a demonstration sport like it had been the previous time in 1968. At the next Games in 1988, tennis was once again an official medal sport, having last been an official sport in the 1924 Summer Olympics.

Two events (men's and women's singles) were demonstrated at these Games. The competition venue was the Los Angeles Tennis Center at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Each event had 32 players, and only players under 21 years old were eligible to enter the tournament.
