ALSS - Abbreviated Line Sweeping System
In order to speed up turnover time of courts and improve line
calling (leaves better mark) the tournament will use (as in the
past) the ALSS. This is where only the service and baselines are
cleaned leaving the sidelines untouched. The service &
baselines are cleaned for depth perception but not needed on
sidelines. In turn, the ball makes much clearer mark when line is
unswept. This also saves valuable turnover time of courts when
there are full schedule of matches all day using 10 courts.
