Oliver is a tremendous Tennis Coach.

His attention to detail and love for teaching are apparent in each lesson.

I recommend taking multiple lessons for optimal improvement. Make sure to ask him about his serving technique !

We found the American Tennis Academy by online search prior to our first trip to St. Maarten, and have been returning to play here each time we visit St. Maarten. It is much more than just courts to rent (which are great BTW). It is a place to find opponents to play, take lessons from a pro (Oliver, the owner and pro), meet interesting people from all over the world and from St. Maarten, watch TV tennis events with others, have a drink, or even a nice breakfast. Oliver could not be a nicer person or a more avid lover of the game of tennis. He will teach you, arrange good opponents for you, make you laugh, and most of all, make you feel very welcome. St. Maarten is lucky to have this place.

A beautiful experience. My 1st time playing on a rubber surface. The court played similar to clay on the bounce, but you could also hit thru the court like a hard court. Beautiful location, great people. Orient bay 5 mins away. I recommend it for tennis lovers on cruise ships for a unique island experience. $30usd taxi (one way), and after, jump into the Atlantic at orient to cool off! Great place, great people.

I have been visiting Oliver four times every annual visit, since 2019. Each time I see him, I leave the island much better than I came to it in terms of my Tennis. On this trip, we comprehensively worked on backhand, forehand, and serving. Oliver is amazing! As but one example, he is all the way across the net from me, and telling me that I moved my grip from where he wanted it! If you want to get your Tennis, to the next level, you need to go see Oliver and he will fix you up!

Oliver has created a beautiful tennis academy in St. Martin. If you are looking for lessons to add some “salt & pepper” to your game then he’s the right professional. He’s a tactician that will not sugarcoat your deficiencies. He’s a gentleman and a lot of fun to spend an hour on your game. I highly recommend planning lessons with him. His pro shop has great shirts too! Enjoy!

I can't recommend Oliver high enough. I fixed a lot of my backhand issues. I gave me lots of tools to keep on correcting. He definitely is not a human ball machine like many instructors. Thanks so much. I'll be back next year!

We had an amazing experience at American Tennis Academy. Oliver is a fantastic teacher. He is a master 'technician', with an incredible eye and a wonderful way of reinforcing his teaching.. My husband and I are planning another trip to St Martin so we can learn even more from Oliver. The website is down right now so it is difficult to get in touch with him. Here are his contact details.

I am a 4.0 level tennis player who has taken many lessons from other professionals. I must say that Oliver is one of the best. He is a master of stroke mechanics. He broke down by forehand and backhand step-by-step and the changes resulted in much smoother and consistent strokes with less effort. Oliver is the ultimate professional. He was so passionate in improving my game that he added 30 minutes to two of our lessons at the end at no charge as well as canceling a local lesson with someone in order to add an additional lesson with me.
