We have previously written about some of the area’s world records, but during the Rugby World Cup we saw another world record set.
The most participants in a touch / mini / tag rugby exhibition match is 442 players and was organised by the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames in Richmond, London, UK, on 14 October 2015.
The record attempt took place in Old Deer Park, Richmond, with school children from 32 local schools between the ages of 7 and 11.
Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Sport, Cllr Meena Bond, said:
“We always knew Richmond’s young people were among the fittest and most competitive in London – they’ve been on the podium of the London Youth Games for the past two years, but now they are world beaters. Well done to everyone involved – you’ve made Richmond proud.”
Well done kids!
