1. When participating in any sport I ensure that the other players and particularly the referees and the umpires, etc, are aware of my problem in order that visual or touch signals can be given to me.

2. Some people prefer to play sports without their hearing aid(s) in as a ball hitting the head may damage the hearing aid and the sharp edges may cause injuries.

3. I use toupee tape on my hearing aids when I’m playing tennis – it stops them from coming out when I’m running about..
