Tennis Specific Sunglasses

Solar Bat

CTA stocks Solar Bat Tennis Specific sunglasses. We have a few styles for you to try before you buy. These are exclusive to CTA as the European distributor.


An aqua lens tint has long been the standard for enhancing yellow targets, such as a tennis ball. Solar Bat tweaked the conventional aqua tint to maintain the yellow ball enhancement but to also highlight the out of bound lines.

This new Leverage Performance Tennis tint enhances the two most important targets for the tennis player. This fact alone would make this new tint a giant improvement over existing tennis tints, but another problem needed to be solved.

The sun can be blinding when looking into the sky with any selective filtration tint to enhance a yellow ball, after all the sun is yellow too, so Solar Bat added a 12% light transmission gray gradient to the top 25% of the Leverage Performance lens.

In straight forward gaze the eye is viewing through the wavelength enhancing portion of the lens and the ball and lines are enhanced. When the wearer looks up, as when serving or returning a lob, the view is through the dark gray tint. When the human eye is exposed to bright light photo receptors are bleached out and the recovery takes a short period of time. Testing of this revolutionary tint on tennis players, at all skill levels, proved that visual adaptation time is improve by 1 to 1.5 second resulting in vastly improved performance considering the speed at which a tennis ball travels.


We can offer them to you for £80, that’s for all styles in the range.
