Maui Jim signs Golding

May 4, 2012

Peoria, Illinois — Maui Jim, the iconic Hawaiian sunglasses brand, has signed 18-year-old tennis star Oliver Golding to its team of Ambassadors

Created on the Hawaiian Island to make the colours shine, Maui Jim sunglasses feature proprietary PolarizedPlus2® lens technology that produces brilliant colour and superior optical clarity without glare or harmful UV rays.

“Maui Jim sunglasses are great for tennis. The polarized lenses make all the difference when playing outside because they stop the glare. As well as being practical, they also look great!” enthused Oliver Golding.

The Twickenham-based ATP World Tour player joins a roster of international Maui Jim tennis Ambassadors, including Mardy Fish and Sabine Lisicki.

“We are delighted to welcome Oliver to the Maui Jim team. Oliver’s sunny personality and exciting game reflect our brand,” said Mark Polloway, director at Maui Jim.

Oliver Golding is one of the UK’s brightest tennis prospects. 2011 was a highly successful year for Golding, most notably winning the US Open Boy’s singles title, which was the first time a British player had lifted a boys’ Grand Slam singles title since Andy Murray in 2004.

Golding made his ATP Tour debut at the Aegon Championships at Queens Club where he played a great match against one of the leading grass court players, Nicolas Mahut. 2012 will be an exciting year for Golding, as he looks to move up the pro rankings. Golding ended the year ranked third on the ITF Junior World Ranking Circuit and ranked 644 in men’s singles rankings of the ATP Tour. While training, Oliver opts for Maui Jim’s active sports-orientated Ho’okipa sunglasses. Off court, Oliver opts for the stylish Sand Island frame.
