World record success for bounce-a-thon held at Loughborough University

Students, staff, and members of the local community who took part in a ‘bounce-a-thon’ at Loughborough University have set a new world record.

The world record is for the most people bouncing simultaneously in one place. In total, 324 took part in the bounce-a-thon meaning Loughborough hopefuls regained the record.

The event was organised by graduate enterprise ambassador Becky White. Becky and members of the University and local community set a new world record back in 2012 as part of the University’s Olympic Torch Relay celebrations and have now reclaimed their title.

Becky said: “We are absolutely delighted to have regained the title for the most people bouncing in one place. Organising a world record attempt is a huge challenge but we are so relieved that we have managed to pull it off once again.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time out to get involved, without them we would never have been able to achieve this.  It’s a great feeling to be world record holders once again!”

Becky is now selling the world record trampolines along with her own Bounce for Beginners DVD workout. Visit for further information.
