There are few sports that can boast a constant presence in the over-100-year history of Greek sports and the Olympic movement and among them tennis occupies a distinguished position. In the beginning it made its appearance as a sport of the bourgeoisie on the eve of the 1896 Summer Olympic Games, where its participation actively contributed to their revival. Nowadays, however, it is an extremely popular sport and hundreds of thousands of Greek people play tennis on an amateur or professional basis.
The country’s mild climate creates considerably favourable conditions for the sport, while apart from the courts belonging to the various local tennis clubs, many hotels also have tennis courts.
