What we find interesting is that so often when we start talking to people about eye health, many people start to tell a story of how they or their husband, father, grandmother etc has a pterygium or macular degeneration or cataracts etc. And we are not just talking about people in their 60s and 70s here. We have met people who have had a pterygium from the age of 29, from their thirties or their forties.
The common theme is that when they talk to an eye professional about their issue, the first piece of advice is to wear sunglasses. Unfortunately, at this stage so much damage has been done, ideally, the sunglasses ought to have been worn since childhood.
Research shows that the consequences of the sun’s UV rays on the skin are widely understood, this understanding is greatly reduced when it comes to understanding the effect of the sun’s UV rays on the eyes. We believe that by communicating with members about the importance of wearing sunglasses whilst outside, but perhaps even more importantly about the importance of children wearing sunglasses, we can significantly increase the demand for sunglasses thus resulting in better eye health outcomes for your members.
Of course, in addition, each pair of sunglasses sold, whether they be from our kids, young adult or adult ranges results in funding for your club.

of people associate UV with eye problems (hence the need for education).

of children wear sunglasses (but this should be 100%).
We would love your club to be part of the Le Tissier Sports Clubs Fundraising program. It’s a very simple, but highly beneficial, process and we would love to talk through it with you.
Please contact us to find out more.
The Le Tissier sponsorship initiative has been great for Milford Tennis Club.
We have been working with Le Tissier since 2013 and the partnership has been very beneficial both in raising funds for our new club house and also we are very keen to have our young tennis players wear sunglasses just as their parents do when they are playing tennis.
We have received compliments from other clubs during inter-club games about our fabulous sunglasses!
We see this as a long term partnership that will benefit us for many years to come.
