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 uncleaned. 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 12 courts (saving approx. 3 minutes per court x 12 x 4 court turnovers = 148 minutes of line sweeping). Once you get used to it you'll wonder why we don't use it all the time (I know not as pretty). Play well & good luck - Larry Turville - Tournament Advisor
