Frederick Novak and Karl Strasberger broke the world record in marathon tennis on Sunday, August 14 at 2:09 pm, surpassing it by 101 minutes. Official entry into the Guinness Book of Records pending verification and submission by Guinness World Records.
In the months before and during the event, the massive sporting inclusion campaign donated around 80,000 euros, including monetary and service donations. The beneficiaries are Vinzent, who lives with youths from Tetra Spasticity, the Sportpocket Association and the Schwabing Tennis Club. Fundraising is now being extended and will continue for a few more weeks. A total of 159 sets and 1,475 games were played day and night with three long breaks of about 50 minutes each. 5 minute breaks per hour were allowed; However, most of these were bundled together.
The well-attended event offered fundraisers such as a marquee, live music group, an “unplugged” short tour from Adelser, evening discos and ergometer cycling for the Gluxmoment Association’s good cause. There was also a morning pint, a quick draftsman and a cheerleader performance on the final day. Ultra mountain runner Andreas “Rambo” Ropin was often on site as a motivator.
