Q. A doubles team was wearing color enhancing sunglasses during their match. I questioned the tournament official about the legality, who looked at me like I was crazy. However, I was told by a senior official in a previous tournament that these types of sunglasses are not legal for play. I am unable to find information in the Rules or Code. Can you help?

A. I am not sure exactly what color enhancing sunglasses you are speaking of, however most sun glasses that I am aware of are legal.
