Hey everyone,

I thought I would update you all. On the 23rd March 2014, me and my father Peter Ives attempted to break the Worlds Longest Table Tennis Rally. We achieved 8 hours, 40 minutes and 5 seconds. We have some good news! Last week Guinness World Records verified the new world record which now features on their website here. (http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/records-1000/longest-table-tennis-rally/)

6549

Thanks to everyone who supported and helped raise over £1700 to prostate cancer charity! We want to give a huge thanks to the team of Sam Hamilton, Dave Cochrane, Daniel Ives, Peter Ives, Vincent McAneney, Peter Davies in making this event record and to STIGA for sponsoring the event!

Congratz, but i'm pretty sure the old record was over 10 hours back in 1983...

Haha good question! I think my dad is taking a back seat, I kinda gave him probably the most difficult challenge :) We are currently making some frames with the world record certificate to put in the club where we set the record, other than that all is good.

Thank you for asking ttmonster I hope everythings good on your side.
