Wimbledon Bar Manager Breaks World Tennis Record

By playing the highest number of consecutive tennis matches in 72 hours

A Wimbledon bar manager has beaten the record for most consecutive tennis matches over three days by playing 36 games without stopping.

Mike Mitchell, aged 35, who manages Hemingways bar in Wimbledon Village has raised more than £13,000 for the NSPCC, Tennis for Free and Rally for Bally by playing 36 consecutive matches.

He was only allowed short breaks of 5 or 10 minutes to fit in with Guinness World Record rules, and he now awaits confirmation that he has broken the previous record of 33 matches.
