Tennis At The 1984 Summer Olympics
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 would once again be 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 -20-year olds were allowed to enter the tournament.

“Behind the glass, under the cellophane,
Remains your final summer sweet
And meaningless, and not to come again.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
“The boneless quality of English conversation, which, so far as I have heard it, is all form and no content. Listening to Britons dining out is like watching people play first-class tennis with imaginary balls.”
