Cricket Namibia has recently announced that Torga Optical Namibia has become the official ‘eyecare partner’ for The Eagles.
The cricket body deems vision a very important aspect in sport and that is why they felt the need to have an eyecare partner.
Torga Optical will sponsor the Eagles with sunglasses and eye testing for a two-year period, which will run from 2020 to 2021.
Johan Muller, Cricket Namibia CEO, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with Jana and her team from Torga Optical.
“They are well respected brand in Namibia and stand for quality products and good service.”
The cricket national team will play a high number of international tournaments in the next two years.
Muller therefore emphasised the need for quality eyecare, which he believes plays a critical role in on-field performance.
“Cricket is a full-day sport and played in the very warm summers of Namibia.
“I want to encourage every young sportsman and woman to take care of their eyes through regular testing and correct eye products. Torga Optical caters for all these needs.”
Owner of Torga Optical Namibia Jana Kotze said her company is proud to partner with Cricket Namibia to take care of the Eagles’ visual needs.
She reiterated the importance of good vision, stating that it plays an important role in all sports.
“Healthy eyes and vision are extremely important for optimum sports performance. For a sportsman and woman, vision is much more than simply seeing clearly. Several important visual skills can affect how well you play your sport.”
She added that the Torga team look forward to working with the national team and coaching staff.
“The Eagles are going from strength to strength and we wish them a great year ahead,” Kotze said.
