Sports Glasses for Pickleball

What Is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a game that can be played either indoors or outdoors on a pickleball court, or a court that looks similar to a tennis court. The game can be played with either two players or four players. The game involves hitting a perforated polymer ball over a net that is three feet high using solid-faced paddles. The game has elements of tennis, ping-pong and badminton incorporated into it.

How Pickleball Gained Popularity Today

Pickleball was invented in 1965, but has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years. This is because the game is exciting and fairly easy to learn. Additionally, while it is fun to play, it is a game that can be played at different skill levels, ranging from beginners to professionals, ensuring people of all ages and all skill levels can participate in this sport and have fun while doing so.

Pickleball is not a sport that requires you to wear protective eyewear. However, if you typically wear glasses, you will want to wear sports glasses to ensure you can see clearly while playing. Your regular glasses can easily fall off your face while you are running for the ball or break if the ball hits them. This is why you need to wear eyewear that is specifically designed to be worn while playing a sport.

Risks of Not Wearing Sports Glasses in Pickleball

If you do not wear sports glasses for pickleball, even though you typically wear glasses, you may find yourself unable to see clearly. It is important to see clearly and have good vision while playing pickleball because you have a small ball that is being hit across a court. You have to be able to see where the ball is being hit in order for you to track and follow the ball, and hit it back over the net. If you have vision problems, it is easy to lose track of the ball, which can impact your ability to truly follow the ball and be a good player.
