World Record Challenge - HLBA

On 25 November 2012 the Hobart Ladies Badminton group organized a Guinness World Record Challenge for the most number of players involved in a single badminton rally.

The target was to exceed 113 individual participants.
The best rally was 42 hits, so well short of the record, but the organisation of the event was superb and there was much interest generated.
