Protective Eyewear Recommended
8-22-2006
protective eyewear

The APTA Board, recognizing that eye injuries can be prevented, is suggesting that protective eyewear be worn while playing platform tennis.  Proper eyewear or goggles can protect your eyes and your child’s from injuries from balls or paddles.  All APTA member clubs will be given signs recommending that protective eyewear be worn. List of recommended eyewear and more details.

What’s best?  Look for polycarbonate lenses.  They are scratch-resistant, provide UV protection, and are virtually unbreakable.  The frames should be polycarbonate or impact-resistant plastic.  Padding at the bridge will help to cushion the blow in case of a direct hit.

Fit is important.  You and your child need eyewear that fits your faces – otherwise it will either not provide protection or it will be uncomfortable and not be worn.  Make sure there is a strap to keep your goggles securely in place.

You might not be able to save your knees, but you can certainly protect your eyes!  Set a good example for your child and others.  Shop today!
