Oliver was an outstanding tennis coach. His instructive yet easily understandable teaching style was fantastic. It would have been nice to have stayed in St. Martin to learn more from Oliver.

I was in St Martin for a week and was keen to improve my tennis game. I've played on and off since i was a kid and reached an ok level but have never really had any proper coaching so my technique was all over the place. After a quick look on TripAdvisor I found Oliver at the American Tennis... More

The reason for our trip to St. Martin, aside form some R&R was for my wife, Yoko, to improve tennis. Oliver, our passionate tennis guru, applied his laser focus to Yoko's fundamentals and essentially helped her raise her game. His method was intense yet personable. Yoko indicated to me that her sessions with Oliver were, perhaps, the best that she... More

My wife and I took lessons for a week in March/April 2016 returning from a couple of lessons 2 1/2 years ago. Being a fairly new player, I understood what Oliver was trying to teach me but I did not spend enough time with him for it to sink in properly the first time or just forgot. I could not... More

My husband and son love tennis. We scheduled two lessons with Oliver. He is a very caring instructor and great host and it was definitely a highlight of the trip. I would suggest scheduling a one-on-one lesson for each interested player to get the most out of it.

Oliver is the pro and a wonderful, engaging and expert teacher. My hubby has been playing most of his life and Oliver taught him a number of new techniques that improved his game enormously. Highly recommended.

My husband, daughter and I took a lesson from Oliver this March. His simple approach was very helpful, I have incorporated some of his "corrections" into my home game. We had lots of fun.

It isn't often that you can say that you had a life changing sporting experience... but this is one such occasion. Oliver is the best coach that I have ever had... the quality of his coaching is worth coming back to St Martin for! I had 6 hours of coaching; when I returned to the UK, my coach couldn't believe...
