In the modern history (over 100 years) of Greek sports and the Olympic Movement, few sports have always been present. Prominent among them was tennis. It initially appeared as a sport for the bourgeoisie just before the 1st Modern Olympic Games in 1896 (Athens), where the participation of the sport in the Games contributed actively to its revival. Today however, the game is an extremely popular sport and hundreds of thousands of Greeks play tennis, both as amateurs as well as professionally.

The mild climate of the country actively helps to play the game. Apart from the courts belonging to various local tennis clubs, courts can also be found in many hotel complexes.
