Serving Up Our Top Tennis Sunglasses

June 2015

Tennis is a sport defined by narrow margins. Not just the lines of the tennis court itself, but also the physical condition and mental strength of its competitors. Focus is extremely important to tennis players, and every split second gained in reaction time counts. To help maintain this focus when the sun is at its strongest, eyewear is essential to keep vision clear and distraction free.

Here is RxSport’s choice of tennis sunglasses, picked specifically for their frame and lens performance to enhance your game!

Tifosi Radius FC Sunglasses – Gunmetal / AC Red + Clarion Blue + Clear

The perfect entry-level frame for a true competitor, the Tifosi Radius FC has extended lens coverage to protect the eyes from bright light coming from all directions. With three lenses coming as standard with this colourway, you’ll have every light condition covered. Clear is perfect for indoor use, AC Red gives great contrast enhancement, and the Clarion Blue lens has a mirror finish for the brightest weather.

Nike Skylon Ace XV Pro Sunglasses – White & Dark Concorde / Grey w/Violet Flash

Nike skylon ace xv pro

New this season, the Nike Skylon Ace XV Pro gives extended protection in the lower eye area to prevent glare from the court surface from creeping into view. With an aggressive and swift shape, this frame doesn’t just look great, its rubber grip temples and vented nosepiece mean the fit is exceptionally comfortable. Nike’s Max Optics lenses are cut from the best optical zone on the lens blank, meaning your views will be optically clear and distortion free at all angles of view.

Oakley Flak 2.0 XL Sunglasses – Matte Black / Bronze Polarised

This is an excellent choice for grasscourt play. Oakley’s HDPolarized® filter blocks 99% of reflected glare from flat surfaces. On intensely bright days these lenses will eliminate discomforting glare. Unobtainium® earsocks and interchangeable nose pads sizes mean the fit of the frame will be secure and comfortable, and your frame won’t slip due to sweat!

Rudy Project Genetyk Sunglasses – Black Gloss / ImpactX 2 Photochromic Black

A couple of features make the Rudy Project Genetyk a unique choice for tennis. The first is the shield lens design. With a single, seamless shield covering the eyes your view will not be compromised by a gap at the nose bridge. The second are the fully-adjustable temple tips, which can be bent in 360° to create a unique, optimised fit for any wearer. The Photochromic Black lens seen pictured goes close-to-clear indoors or on dull days, making this model a great year-round choice.

Bolle Bolt Sunglasses – Shiny Black / Competivision Gun

Originally designed for cycling, Bolle’s Bolt frame actually has the makings of an excellent all-round sports model. What sets this pair apart is the equipped competivision lens. Specifically designed for tennis use, this lens makes the green ball “pop” and stand apart from the court surface, meaning you will be able to more easily spot the ball in flight to get the winning edge!
