I'm a bit of a tennis tourist. I always bring a racquet and check out local tennis, even on my non-tennis vacations. Oliver is a classic tennis instructor diagnostician. I appreciated his quick insights into some technique problems in my tennis strokes. I am always trying to improve my game...even at 66!

We took two tennis lessons with Oliver and really enjoyed his coaching and suggestions. He worked hard to help us improve our game and his wife was also very friendly. The experience was great and we highly recommend you schedule a lesson with Oliver when you are on the island🎾👍 Sally and Paul

This was my second visit to St. Maarten and to the Tennis Academy taking lessons from Olivier. Olivier and Jennifer create a helpful, encouraging and comforting atmosphere that all visitors would feel. Olivier has a way of influencing my "inner tennis player" to raise my skill set on the court. I am currently preparing for a Seniors ITF tourney in... More

I am now on my second visit to st martin taking instruction from Olivier. He is great! Having played tennis for almost half a century, he is fantastic at un-doing bad habits and getting the maximum effort from me. A real pleasure and challenge at the same time.

My sister and I had a wonderful lesson with Oliver who provided truly helpful instruction. He's very patient and clearly has a passion for tennis and helping others understand how to improve their technique. He helped me understand where I needed correction and how I can check to be sure I'm incorporating the necessary changes in movement. I only wish... More

Oliver is really great. I took a lesson with my sister and he zeroed in on the technical corrections we each needed, which were very different. He's very generous with his time and the lesson was absolutely worth the money. Oliver was very welcoming, introducing is to his lovely daughter and chatting with us very comfortably. It was a great... More

We found American Tennis Academy about 7 years ago and visit every time we are in St. Martin. The courts are in excellent shape. I particularly enjoy the goats that sometimes observe from across the street. Our favorite part of the visit is spending time with Oliver & Jennifer. Oliver is a great instructor and very patient.
