Tennis became an Olympic sport in 1826. After being discontinued in 1924 it was brought back in 1988.When did tennis become an Olympic event

How can tennis have beeen introduced into the Olympics as a sport in 1826 if it was only invented in 1873 by Major Walter Clopton Wingfield and patented as 'Lawn Tennis' (originally called 'Sphairistike' , acient greek) in 1874! or when the first modern Olympics was only introduced again in 1896 since it had been abolised by christains in ancient times for its pagean influence. I believe it was 1896 not 1826.
