I stayed in the French Cul de Sac on the French side for 3 weeks and took several lessons from Oliver and also used the courts to play with my husband. The facility is beautiful with self-draining courts that dry quickly, a great pro shop to fit all of your needs (don't forget to buy one of his high quality... More

Had three sessions with Oliver. Focus on technique. Excellent advice. Nice facility. Excellent for those that are interested in assessment of technique. I will spend more time with Oliver at some point in the future. Tested his training back on home court. It works....

We enjoyed tennis at the Academy most mornings during out 2 weeks in Grand Case, St. Maartens. Courts are in excellent condition. Oliver, the tennis professional, was very accommodating in fitting us into the schedule since there are only 2 courts. Would highly recommend this location if you need a tennis fix when you are on holidays!

As a former teaching pro myself, I rarely seek a " hitting lesson " while on vacation. The pro here is Oliver and he actually was interested in working on my technique. He is very knowledgable is a quality teaching pro. I can recommend taking a lesson here for beginner or very advanced players. I'm actually going back for another... More

We've played and taken lessons in many top resorts throughout the US and I'd say we thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality, the quality of the club, and Oliver's enthusiasm and expertise. We came thinking we would get some quick tips and play time but we took us back and changed some fundamentals..... that's always tough but well worth it. Kudos Oliver... More

Spoke to Oliver today and I asked for his tennis credentials. He told me to look it up on the website. He is overpriced for the quality of the instructor that I observed on court. Only okay for a beginner. I have been at a number of tennis facilities in Europe, Florida, other Caribbean Islands and Canada and Oliver had... More

Dear gerardbuckley, I recall that you came by to only inquire about my credentials. You have not been a customer of American Tennis Academy. You haven't taken a lesson with me nor have you played on our courts. In fact you came by to observe for 5 minutes to make yourself a superficial opinion without having had a personal experience...

My husband made these reservations for a cruise side trip, we're avid tennis players. Oliver was memorably terrific! We took a taxi from the Dutch side, easy to get to, and wow what a perfect spot to learn! Oliver took more time with us than expected, and brought us through engineering our swing to much improve our game. He was... More

While on the island I took several lessons with Oliver. He picked up on many points that have greatly helped my game. I highly recommend that if you want to improve your game let Oliver help. I have taken many lessons over the years and highly recommend Oliver. Thanks for everything. Ron DiPietro

Oliver was great! My wife and 11 yr old son booked two hours of court time while on shore for the day from a cruise. Despite the fact our taxi first took us to the American medical university (make sure you say French side) and we were an hour late, he honored our two hours and gave all three of... More

Good Tennis Experience in St. Martin. Small tennis club, 2 courts. Good instructor. Oliver made me feel comfortable. I played one game with someone he set me up with, and took one 1 hour lesson from him. Both were good experiences
