Blakeview, South Australia, Australia / June 19, 2010

Peter Craig bounced a table tennis ball 91 times on a table tennis paddle in 30 seconds while alternating sides of the paddle. This beats the previous record by 12 bounces and averages 3 bounces per second (or 30 bounces per 10 seconds). Note: Bounces were counted and alternating sides verified by playing video at 1/4 speed. Two bounces towards the end are unfortunately just off camera frame but the alternating sides can be seen in the consistent motion of the hand.

- must use a standard table tennis paddle
- must use a standard table tennis ball
- bounces must be consecutive
- must alternate sides of paddle between each bounce
- must provide video evidence

    Thanks Peter. I was at 50 at 15 seconds then things slowed down.

    Nice job Geoff! It's so annoying that there's still room for at least 2-3 more bounces :)

    Hey guys. Comments noted. We're doing everything we can to keep up with your submission pace, but as you can tell, we're a bit behind. As we get you further engaged with adjudication, things will move at a much more rapid pace. Thanks for bearing with us, dr

    Hello Peter. There are a lot of my records that need to be updated. A lot of my records have a value of 2 or xx next to them. I found 6 of them today. I'll talk to them about. Thanks for the concern. As for counting my bounces when I submit my records. I usually do but my count is always off. You seen that today with the coffee mug. I did not count nearly as much as you did. See you later!

    This record needs to be updated. Timing from the first bounce I counted 79. The next bounce just misses the 30 seconds along with the next 4 bounces are outside of 30 seconds.
