My wife and I came to this island the first time. Our hotel recommended me to the American Tennis Academy. I booked one lesson with Olivier. I ended up took 3 more lessons. Olivier is a kind of no nonsense coach. He will not tell you what you would like to hear. He believes good form which will build strong... More

My daughter and I are beginners. By pure chance we visited American Tennis Academy and decided to take a lesson with Oliver. Three lessons later we are better and more confident. Oliver is a coach from God. He is not only great technically but a talented and passionate teacher who can break it down in simple steps for the beginners.... More

I took only 1 lesson from Olivier, but it was the most valuable tennis lesson I ever took. He is a technical doctor so to speak. My forehand wasn’t bad before, but I learned four important things from Olivier, which I now use, and my forehand is so much better, that I am totally enthusiastic. He should see it now... More

We were staying nearby for a week and my two sons and I thoroughly enjoyed playing here. Courts are in excellent condition and the whole operation seemed really well run. Some nice souvenir kit to buy in the shop. Would love to go back and I wish Oliver all the best.

Oliver has two beautiful, lighted courts in a great spot on the French side of the island. His coaching is something you must experience no matter how long you've been playing tennis. He will teach you the right way to play the game and make you a much better player. I am so thankful to have had 3 lessons with... More

Oliver, my wife and I wish to thank you for your fine coaching while we were in St Martin. For those of you who haven't been there, St Martin is terrific for tennis lovers, as the weather (in January) is not overwhelmingly hot. We were able to enjoy tennis at 10 or 11 in the morning, not just 8 AM... More

St Martin is known for it's beaches and food. But if your a tennis enthusiast, Oliver will examine your game,and similar to a doctor, cure ones technique. After three lessons my game reached new levels. Also Oliver passion for the game is infectious. I highly recommend American Tennis Acadamy.
