This Friday morning, while we are all sitting at our desks leisurely drinking or morning coffee, Guy and Darren will be starting their gruelling 32 hours of competetive squash against each other as they try to break a Guinness World Record – currently standing at 31 hours 2 minutes.

Guy was originally playing with Personal Trainer and Squash coach Nick Wynd, who sadly had to pull out of the competition last week due to an injury. Darren bravely stepped forward to take up this enormous challenge only last week! The pair must play for 32 hours with only a five minute break every hour, and will need to be in constant competition to break the record.

Racquets is hosting the event, and the club will be open for the duration – including throughout the small hours of Friday night. The pair are due to complete their challenge at 8pm on Saturday night, and to spur them on Simon Martin from Racquets is hosting a finishing party at the club bar from 6pm. Come down and spur the guys on – the longer they can go, the more they can raise!!

They are hoping to raise more than £10,000 for Cancer Research UK and Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children which are charities close to their heart. Guy said: “Both of us have known people who have cancer so it is very close to our hearts and my niece is autistic and benefits from the charity.”

Thame TV have been lucky enough to be involved in the event from the start, and just last week we spoke with Roger Ridler from Cancer Research UK and Emma Lerche Thompson from The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children in Henley. These are two fantastic charities, both in great need of funding. Please take a look at our video to see some of the fantastic work they do, and click on either link below to pledge.

We hope to see you all down at Racquets on Saturday night!
