+61 428 949 993
Hosted by Rare Voices Australia

The event - what will we be doing?

- Four friends are going to play a doubles tennis match for more than 60 consecutive hours to break the Guinness World Record and raise money for charity

- The goal is to raise at least $20,000 for Rare Voices Australia – who do amazing work with limited resources to fight for a healthcare system which supports all Australians with a rare diseases

- The current world record for the longest doubles match stands at 60 hours, 24 minutes and 14 seconds… that’s longer than a return flight to Europe! But the pain and isolation our players are going to feel on the court is nothing compared with the suffering experienced by those living with a rare disease.

When and where it is happening?

- Commencing on 28 February 2019 – which is International Rare Disease Day

- At the Melbourne Park Tennis Centre (home of the Australian Open!)
