My partner and I have been visitors to St. Martin from NYC for several years now, and we always go back to play tennis at The American Tennis Academy. We love it. Oliver is accommodating, kind, and casual. It's a great place to play and watch tennis as well. We enjoyed Wimbledon between points on his Big screen TV! Sitting... More

I have been playing tennis for a long time and never thought I could improve my game until I met Oliver on the court. As it turned out even my grip was off! Oliver is a true professional. He is patient and funny with all of his students. I highly recommend taking lessons at the American Tennis Academy. It will... More

In the beginning I was a little bit skeptical about taking any lessons at all. But luckily I met Oliver on the court. He will become not only your favorite coach, but your most respected coach for the rest of your life. I am extremely thankful that I had an opportunity to train with Oliver. We are definitely coming back... More

Both my daughter and I have improved on our tennis skills a ton. Oliver is an amazing coach. 🎾✌️☀️ We played everyday for 20 days and have enjoyed every minute of it. Oliver was able to correct my old mistakes that I have lived with for years and put my daughter on a right track. Bravo, Oliver! 👏👏👏

I looked Oliver up online prior to my first visit to St. Martin, and emailed to inquire about lessons. I booked 3 2-hour sessions with him. Within 5 minutes of observing me play, Oliver could tell I was pulling up on my forehand and backhand, and not truly swinging through the ball. We worked hard to correct that. Oliver is... More

Wife and I "found" these courts a couple of kilometers from our hotel. We stopped by and met the owner/pro Oliver. We purchased a weeks worth of court time and made good use of it. Oliver was very helpful and after we turned in our rental car arranged for a cab to pick us up at our hotel for one... More

Went by on a Sunday afternoon. Business was slow but Oliver was more than accommodating. My family and I played a set and really enjoyed it. The courts are fantastic!! Oliver was an absolute joy to deal with and I think we left there with a new friend.

My wife and I took three lessons with Oliver at the end of April. We are both USTA 3.5 players. We both felt that Oliver was an excellent coach and a true professional. It is always useful to periodically go back to basics and examine your technique. Great experience; we are looking forward to going back to St. Martin and... More

We always look for tennis wherever we travel and spent time once again at the American Tennis Academy. Coach Oliver gave my husband instruction on his strokes and my husband and I rented a court for an hour of play. Oliver is a very demanding and intense instructor. I believe he will improve your game if you are willing to... More

After trying a few different tennis courts in St. Martin, we were so excited to discover this spot! The facility is very well kept, and Oliver who runs it could not be nicer.
