A Multi-Year Endorsement
With Revo Performance Sunglasses
LAKE NONA, FL, March 1, 2022 — The United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), Inc. is pleased to announce a multi-year endorsement with Revo as the "Official Performance Eyewear" of the USPTA starting March 1, 2022.
Revo was founded
in 1985 when NASA Astrophysicist and Optical Engineer Dr. Mitch Ruda was
working on a project for NASA when he had a simple idea. What if we used the
coatings that protect satellites to shield our eyes from the sun? Dr. Ruda uses
the NASA-developed protective coatings that protect satellite portholes from
space radiation on a pair of sunglasses to protect the eye. With this
revolutionary finding, Revo is born.
"In recent years, those of us in the tennis-teaching
profession have come to realize the importance of protecting our skin from the
relentless exposure to the sun due to the long-term detrimental effects,"
says John Embree, USPTA CEO. "However, many of us don't think about
protecting our priceless gift of sight from the harm that can come from
excessive exposure to the sun's damaging UV rays. Revo sunglasses feature NASA
Light Management System™ technology to manage the entire light spectrum,
providing optimum vision in all conditions. Good helpful light is allowed in
and enhanced, while harmful light is blocked."
"As a lifelong tennis player, without realizing it,
the USPTA pros taught me everything I know about tennis which makes me
personally so excited to have Revo partner with USPTA. I’m honored that we can now officially share
our industry-leading technology with the USPTA and the tennis world as a whole,"
says Cliff Robinson, Revo CEO. “Our sunglasses are already in many tennis pro
shops and utilized by tennis professionals worldwide. Now, even more USPTA
Professionals and tennis fans in general will learn about our best-in-class
protection and performance.”
Founded in 1985, Revo Sunglasses utilize NASA-based technology to
create a lens that protects, enhances, and improves the way we see the world.
We use an exclusive, lightweight, high-impact resistant material for our base
and then apply a series of unique coatings to the front and back of the lens to
maximize protection and performance. Learn more at Revo.com.
