Tennis was again on the 1992 Olympic Program, after it was returned to the Program in 1988 after an absence of 64 years. Once again there were four events, with menâs and womenâs singles and doubles. The events were held on clay courts at the [Centro Municipal de Tenis Vall d'Hebron] in Barcelona, a private tennis club in the Catalan capital.
