World Record Attempt in Pattaya

Six painstaking hours of Tunnel Ball; this was the Regent’s Primary School’s attempt at breaking a Guinness World Record.

On May 3rd, 125 students from years 4, 5 and 6 took part in “The Amazing Tunnel Ball Challenge” in order to break the previous record of 120 set by St. Columba’s School in Australia. The game involves passing the ball backwards down a straight line; it must go over the first student’s head, then under the next student’s legs. This process must be repeated until it gets to the back of the line and that player must run to the front and start it all again.

Students from the Primary School must take credit for organising the event. It took many hours of preparation to get the players prepared, the location ready, local media outlets notified and food and entertainment available for the attempt to happen. Mind, a year 5 student who took part and helped organise the attempt, said “I never knew how much hard work it took to organise an event on this scale; everyone involved should be very proud.”


The children reached out to local businesses and companies to help make the event run smoothly. The Pullman Hotel, Pattaya, continued to support the area’s local children with a very generous donation of hundreds of drinks in order to help combat the heat and ensure that the children were hydrated throughout their attempt.

The whole event was a part of the Regent’s Primary’s ‘Round Square Week’, where children throughout the school have an opportunity to challenge themselves and develop life skills linked to the 6 Round Square IDEALS. Andrew Ingram, who led the children in their organisation of the event, felt that “The children will take more from this than just a World Record. They now know the value of teamwork, organisation and leadership. The smiles on the faces of the children when the record was achieved showed how much fun you can have when all your hard work pays off. I was really proud of them.”

Although the game is a playground favourite, to enter the Guinness Book of World Records a strict procedure must be followed to prove the event was successful. The school also needed to have individuals from the local community present to verify the attempt had been successful. The pupils and staff at the Regent’s will have to wait for up to 8 weeks until they find out whether or not the attempt has been successful and whether they can claim their place in the history of World Records.
