Now more than ever, tennis sunglasses offer the clarity and protection you need while you’re on the court. Before big upgrades in sports eyewear, it wasn’t common for tennis players to wear sunglasses or prescription tennis sunglasses, even if they needed them. Those days are long gone! Whether you need tennis glasses with or without your prescription, prepare to love the game like never before with your own customized pair. And you’ll find them here at SportRx!READ MORE



SUNGLASSES FOR TENNIS

Why not just use your regular sunglasses for tennis? Put simply, you need frames that are made for movement, and a casual pair just won’t do the trick. You might prefer a visor-friendly shape, or extra sweat management features. Whatever you’re looking for in your tennis sunglasses, we have a few tips for choosing the perfect pair.


GRIP MATERIAL

Grip material on the nose pads and temple tips is a hallmark of any performance frame. Often made of rubber, grip material keeps your tennis glasses locked and secure on your noggin through explosive movement and perspiration. It’s great on the nose pads, but even better when it’s on the temples, too. Popular brands even have their own proprietary materials, like Oakley’s Unobtanium™, which is sweat-activated for heavy duty activity.


WRAP STYLE FRAMES

Wrap around sunglasses close the gaps between you and your tennis sunglasses with a curved shape that sits closely to your face. Also known as an 8-base curvature, wrap sunglasses follow the natural shape of your face for a comfy fit that doesn’t move. You can find wrap around glasses with clear or tinted lenses, and they even work with certain prescriptions. But if you’re not a fan of the super-sporty look, don’t worry! There are also tennis glasses with a flatter frame design that still have a ton of grip and lens options, like the SportRx Koda. But if you like the look and it works with your vision needs, wrap around tennis sunglasses deliver supreme coverage with an ergonomic design.


COLOR CONTRASTING LENSES

Contrast enhancing lens colors are ideal for tennis sunglasses because they help you track the ball. Warm tints like amber, brown, rose, or copper are the best for making your surroundings “pop” with vivid definition, especially greens and reds. The right lens color for tennis sunglasses can increase your reaction time and depth perception, making you quicker and more ready than your opponent. Because they work well for a lot of different sports, most sunglasses brands make performance frames with these lens colors. If you’re looking for a more customized experience, opt for one of our Sport Optimized Lenses! We recommend Start to Finish and Field Day.


SWEAT MANAGEMENT

Tennis sunglasses should be built to handle heat and moisture without fogging up. In the optical world, we call this the sweat management system. Look for features like sweat channels and venting. Sweat channels are grooves in the frame that help drain moisture buildup, usually along the temples. Venting promotes airflow and is found almost anywhere on the frame, including the nose pads, lenses, temples, and the frame itself. You should also make sure your lenses include a hydrophobic lens coating to wick away moisture and keep your view free and clear.

Those are the big features to look for, but you can also customize your tennis sunglasses with extra perks like photochromic or interchangeable lenses. And they all provide UV protection—a must for every tennis player.


There are lots of ways to personalize your pair! For one-on-one assistance, you can always reach out to one of our super-friendly and knowledgeable Sports Opticians. Contact us with your questions and we’ll be more than happy to find a solution for your needs.


PRESCRIPTION TENNIS SUNGLASSES

Speaking of solutions, prescription tennis sunglasses offer a host of benefits you simply won’t find with contact lenses. If you haven’t made the switch yet, you’re in for a real game-changer.


First, let’s talk about UV protection. With most courts being fully or partially exposed to the sun, UV protection is a must for every tennis player. Prescription tennis sunglasses deliver clarity and protection without the risk of falling out, drying out, or distracting you with discomfort like contacts can. They’re made for hours of serious play and stay comfortably on your face with fog-free clarity. With prescription tennis sunglasses, overhead serves and lobs are a piece of cake no matter which side of the court you’re on, or what type of lighting you’re against.


Another bonus of using prescription tennis sunglasses is the color-contrasting lens tech. This is one of those benefits you won’t realize you need until you’ve had it. Warm-toned colors instantly boost your surroundings, comfort your eyes, and upgrade your depth perception. What tennis player doesn’t want that? Whether you’re on a red or green court, under sunny or partially shaded skies, quality lens tech heightens your focus in a snap.


Lastly, prescription tennis sunglasses will give you better optics overall than contact lenses. This is especially true if you wear a stronger prescription or have astigmatism. Not only will you be more comfortable in tennis sunglasses, you can be sure they’ll stay put and won’t betray you in the thick of a match by irritating or misaligning.


But what if you play indoor tennis, or like to play into the night? SportRx also offers prescription tennis glasses!


PRESCRIPTION TENNIS GLASSES

Prescription tennis glasses are becoming increasingly popular and are worn by renowned tennis stars like Martina Navratilova, Hyeon Chung, and the legendary Billie-Jean King. They have all of the same performance features as sunglasses, yet with clear lenses—and you can customize them to your heart’s desire. In fact, we can put clear lenses into almost any frame, whether you got it at SportRx or not.


Your prescription tennis glasses don’t have to stop at clear lenses. You can also put in yellow or amber-tinted lenses to kick up the contrast in your surroundings, or Transitions if you want one lens that will take you from daytime to evening games without swapping your eyewear. We recommend adding GlareDefense™ anti-reflective coating to mute glare from indoor or nighttime court lights. Other options include BlueDefense™ and FogDefense™. Wanna know more?
