Paddle: America’s Most Dangerous Sport

The Lake Forest Club
Lake Forest, IL

Paddle, or platform tennis, is not really America’s most dangerous sport, but injuries DO happen. From nicks and scraps and cuts and bruises to the odd broken and protruding bone, life on the raised platform involves risk. However, sometimes the most overlooked safety concern out on the court is eye protection.

Cue Rec Specs, from Liberty Sport.

Tested to meet and even exceed the strictest ASTM F803 impact standards, Rec Specs performance eyeglasses can withstand nearly any impact. They’re engineered to handle any prescription, so you get comfortable, durable protection without sacrificing sight or style. And even if you’re not a full time glasses wearer, Rec Specs frames can help shield your eyes from impact.

Don’t believe us? According to recent research, more than half of all paddle players experience an eye injury sooner or later playing the sport.

So the next time that yellow-green ball is flying at you and your life flashes before your eyes, remember Rec Specs. Available in-store at Blink Optical, and online at BlinkOptical.com.
