Ultimate Frisbee World Record

Published Tuesday 3rd of September 2013 01:14:05 PM

On Sunday 9 June, Oundle School staff and pupils attempted to beat the Guinness World Record for the largest number of participants in a game of Ultimate Frisbee.

With the current record set at 70, 82 participants took part in a game which was filmed and invigilated for a record breaking submission.

Over �80 was raised for SKRUM Kenya during a collection on the day.

Event organiser and Sports Fellow, Sam Grace commented, �After setting up an Ultimate Frisbee Club at the School this year, I was approached by Fifth former, Morgan Ball (16) about attempting to break the record. I am hoping the attempt will raise the profile of Ultimate Frisbee in schools; it's a fast-paced, dynamic sport which is growing in popularity all over the world. Furthermore, it's a very exciting event to be involved with and a great opportunity to raise money for a worthwhile charity.�

The School should hear from the Guinness Book of Records within 4-6 weeks if their attempt on the record has been recognised and is successful.
