Warwickshire Cricketers Take 20:20 Test
Post on 29th March 2017
Warwickshire County Cricket Club players are eyeing up a successful season as the players step up to the crease for a team eye test.
Celebrating its fifth year as a headline sponsor and official eye care provider, Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care is making sure the entire squad’s eyes are fit and match ready.
Warwickshire batsman and former England player, Jonathan Trott, said: “Being a professional cricketer you obviously need to have 20:20 vision, so sight tests are an essential part of our preparations for the season. We hope that families will also take heed and let this serve as a reminder of how important it is to have regular sight checks.”
Getting your eyes tested a minimum of every two years is vital, as changes to your vision are usually gradual and often go unnoticed. And to help promote the importance of regular sight tests, no matter what age you are, Scrivens has also launched a competition, in partnership with Warwickshire, to design a cricket shirt. Aimed at children under 12 years of age, they have been asked to create their own one-day team shirt, and let their imagination run wild.
The winner will have the honour of being Warwickshire County Cricket Club team mascot at the Royal London One-Day Cup match on Sunday 14th, May. The prize includes four tickets for the match where the Bears will take on the Yorkshire Vikings.
Scrivens optometrist Sheena Mangat said: “We urge people to get their eyes tested every two years, but many people ignore the advice. Children are also often neglected, yet poor vision can have a huge impact on their education and future success.
“It’s a privilege and huge responsibility to be responsible for The Bears eyesight, but I am confident that with our help they will certainly have the perfect vision to keep their eye on the ball.”
