Liverpool Smash World Record…
Back to News
Liverpool has officially smashed the world record for the largest ever tennis lesson according to the Guinness Book of Records – beating the marker set by Andy Murray’s mum Judy in March
The Liverpool Hope University International Tennis Tournament organisers invited local schools to take part in the record attempt on June 18, the day before the tournament, which featured former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, began.
Guided by coaches, including Merseyside’s own Wimbledon legend Barry Cowan, 680 children took part in the session. It meant Liverpool comfortably beat Murray’s Guinness World Record of 406 children taking part in a lesson at Flushing Meadows in the US.
