Tennis competitions at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara were 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 was part of the qualification criteria for the tennis tournament at the 2012 Summer Olympics. The winners of the five competitions had priority entrance into the tennis event, if they were not directly qualified and were near the top 56 in the world. The players also had to be from a country that had not filled its four player quota.[1]

The mixed doubles event was 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]
