Be Part of Something Amazing!

This Summer, everyone has a chance to be part of something amazing, by taking part in an audacious attempt to set an official World Record.

Sunday 30th August
1.00pm - 6.00pm

Southampton Outdoor Sports Centre
For logistical reasons, not at St.James' Park
It's now just 8 days to go, and it's shaping up to be an exciting day!

We're still needing participants - it's only a minimum £2 donation to take part, and each participant will receive their own world record T‑shirt and a commemorative rounders bat for use during the game and to take home.

We're also needing more record crew members (aka volunteers) for the attempt - roles include: marshalling, photography, and officiating, and there are also exclusive opportunities for organisations and groups to get involved.

On the day, alongside the attempt, we have a fantastic entertainment line‑up and a tombola full of local and national vouchers with some Glastonbury Festival merchandise.

If you're able to make it, we'd love to see you there! Please use the forms on our Events & Activities page to register as either a participant or a volunteer.
