Oliver is not only a great tennis pro, but a wonderful person to know. My wife and I played one afternoon and I took a private lesson the next day. The courts are well maintained and the service and prices are impecable! Thanks for everything.

We started by going the the American Tennis Academy to just play for an hour...we ended up playing on the fantastic court for 2 hours, buying really high quality St. Martin tennis shirts designed by Oliver (best souvenir!) and booking a lesson for my teenage son. Oliver and his family was warm and enthusiastic and made our visit lots of... More

It was a delight to meet Oliver and his wonderful family. My girlfriend was just starting to play tennis and she took several lessons with Oliver. A true virtuoso when it comes to teaching the sport of tennis. I was thoroughly impressed with his techniques, knowledge and engaging personality. He was one of the highlights of our trip which just... More

We were met by Oliver, a friendly, caring, and knowledgeable instructor who took the time to teach me the basics of good technique. His professional demeanor was offset by his great sense of humor that... More

Me and my son, a nationally ranked junior under 12 player from Canada, stumbled upon the American Tennis Academy last July while on vacation in St. Martin. At the time we were actively searching for a new coach for my son who is talented but was developing poor technique. Oliver Becaud at the American Tennis Academy was a godsend, exactly... More

The courts at Hotel Esmeralda were under construction, so the concierge booked us at The American Tennis Academy. We played there twice during our stay, once at night, under the lights, once during the day. Two nice (quick-drying, good on the knees) courts, a bar, pro-shop… and a friendly, lovely pro-owner named Oliver, along with his beautiful wife, their daughter,... More

The only place to play on the island. Oliver gave great instruction and had a lot of fun. We stayed at Grand Case Beach Club which provided quick acesx to Oliver's tennis club. Great tennis and fun times!
