“Don't miss this opportunity!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

If you are on St. Martin do not pass up the chance to take a lesson from Oliver. He and Jennifer are both fantastic and the facility is excellent! I am a beginner and went to Oliver thinking I just needed to learn how to serve, after about 15 seconds he realized I needed alot more help than just a serve. In just two lessons he went through the fundamentals of my forehand and backhand and corrected some errors which gave me confidence to go out and play with friends who have way more experience than me. Oliver isn't just trying to earn a fee, he really does care about his students and wants to see them become better players.

“Tennis in SXM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We have been going to SXM for many years. We know Oliver Becaud from his earlier locations. Now he has a new modern facility with two courts. He gives both private and group lessons. He is an excellent teacher and can give his lessons is various languages.

“Great place for tennis on St Martin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

By chance we stayed right up the street from ATA. Oliver and Jennifer, the owners, are fantastic, and so is their facility. Oliver puts his heart and soul into lessons, and is able to quickly identify and communicate your weak points. Jennifer is also an excellent player, and both of them will work to arrange hitting sessions or matches with local players, within to your schedule. If you're looking to keep your game toned up, or just stay in shape during your time in SM, this is the place! The location is convenient to Pinel island, Orient beach, and Grand Case, but can be reached quickly by car from any point on the island.

“Improved my game a LOT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Thanks to Oliver for his instruction at this well-kept and well-appointed facility in St. Martin. Oliver's instruction, in his memorable French accent, will remain in my brain when I sadly leave this beautiful oasis of a place. Oliver is demanding and insistent and he does not just try to get through the lesson and earn his pay. Instead, he takes pride in the technical skills he is able to pass along in even a couple of hour-long lessons. Constantly correcting and encouraging, he is a master coach. Perhaps his best feature is his lovely wife Jennifer, who is careful and thorough about managing the facility and charming the guests. I want to bring all my tennis friends back for a week or two! (but then again, do I really want them to know the Oliver technique so they can beat me at tennis -- nah!)

“Perfect Tennis Facility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

Great facility, great staff !! The co-owner, Jennifer, was very accommodating and catered to our every need. Her and husband collectively are fluent in French, English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch. The academy offers everything you would expect from a professional tennis club...In addition to the excellent courts, they offer refreshments, snacks, coffee. There is also an excellent sports boutique offering an array of tennis clothes, beach clothes and tennis equipment. They offer great hourly rates and weekly discounted rates, and there are also racquets to rent. The location is also very accessible being 3-4min drive away from Grand Case. This is the only real tennis facility on the island. Will definitely go back when we return to St-Martin.
