David Greer spent his youth tennis development in progressive tennis programs in Brussels, Belgium in the 1980's prior to the curriculum being introduced in Canada in 2006 or so. David spent the other half of his youth in Guelph, Ontario (1984-88) under the care and guidance of Harry Greenan the  2002 Canadian Coach of the year, Tennis Canada Excellence Award as TPA coach of the year 2011 and inductee in 2017 to the Waterloo Region Hall of Fame.

In 1988 Greer was first certified in coaching theory by the NCCP/CAC  #258832 in Guelph, Ontario. In 1989 International Tennis Camps Academy was founded in Brussels, Belgium as a summer business while attending the University of West Alabama on a full tennis scholarship. In 1992 the academy became a year- round tennis school with contracts to St. John's International School, The Brussels American School for N.A.T.O and The International School of Brussels. Greer was a former student and then head coach of the elite travelling team at the St. John’s International School where he coached the team to winning three consecutive I.S.S.T. championships. St. John's International School has now put the elite  tennis players in the hands of four time French Open, two time US Open, one time Australian Open and Olympic gold medalist champion Justine Henin. David has also worked privately with various heads of state, ambassadors, dignitaries as well as former NBA, NHL and CFL players who share the same love for the game.

After managing and teaching full time for over ten years the academy was sold and Greer moved back to Halifax in 2000 where he founded Hamachi Steakhouse which he sold in 2006. Having been on sabbatical from tennis for several years and studying the current Maritime tennis narrative he found a need to rekindle the passion he had for tennis and took a seasonal position at the Gordon Hughes Tennis Club. In 2009 he worked at The Northcliffe Tennis Club (under lease ownership of Glenn Dodge) before being hired in 2010 under contract by T.N.S own Marijke Nel for the Courtyard Tennis and Fitness Club as fitness manager and instructor.
