The world’s eyes will be on tennis as Wimbledon starts on Monday and BBR Optometry is delighted to stock Maui Jim sunglasses as worn by court officials and staff working at the prestigious tournament.
Maui Jim, a premium polarised sunglasses brand founded 30 years ago on the shores of Hawaii, are official partners of the ATP tour which includes Wimbledon and the company also has tennis players Martina Hingis and David Ferrer as ambassadors.
Daniel Read, practice manager at BBR Optometry, says: “As the best tennis tournament in the world, it is important for staff working at the championships to benefit from the best sunglasses available.
“Umpires, court officials and other staff working at the tournament spend so much time outdoors that they need the best protection from UV rays and this is exactly what Maui Jim offers.
“What’s more with many of the staff having to judge whether balls have landed out of the court in a split second, the clarity of vision you achieve with Maui Jim lenses is second to none.
“We have been stocking this brand for many years because the sunglasses offer perfect clarity of vision which is especially important for not just tennis but also taking part in other sports such as golf which Maui Jim also sponsors.
“I wish to remind all Hereford locals about the importance of wearing sunglasses to both watch and play sport during the summer months, as high quality sports sunglasses can actually boost performance due to wrapped frames and contrast tints which help players to keep their eyes firmly on the ball,” he added.
So if you haven’t been lucky enough to get tickets to Wimbledon this year, why not come and visit us to see the tournament’s official sunglasses for yourselves?
