USAA Challenge Match Rules and Procedures  (updated 2/26/01)
If you are unranked (nationally or in Georgia), or you just feel you have the ability to defeat a player with a higher rank, you can issue a Challenge to that player. If you win the match, that rank is yours. Just be prepared to set aside several hours or even a day - a typical Challenge Match is the best 4 out of 7 sets (or 3 out of 5 sets), and each set is made up of the best 4 out of 7 games. There have actually been a few Challenge Matches recorded where both players were so evenly matched, they played the maximum possible 49 games to determine the winner.
