Mardy Fish invites all kids to join Wilson’s Guinness World Record attempt & chooses one lucky ball boy
Today US #1 pro tennis player Mardy Fish announced that he will lead Wilson’s attempt to set the Guinness Book of World Records record for the “Most people to bounce a tennis ball on their racquet in one location” on August 26, 2011 at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center.
As a lead in to the NYC event, Mardy Fish was at the Atlanta Tennis Championship Wilson Kids Clinic to choose one lucky fan to join him in NYC. Mardy asked the kids to show their skills with a tennis ball & racket , showing off their best trick. Jacob Shelton was chosen for his Irish dance step & through the legs bounce.
“I can’t believe I won a trip to go to NYC, one of the best cities in the world. To be going with Mardy, one of the best tennis players in the world & Wilson, it’s just awesome,” said the thrilled 13 year old Jacob Shelton.
Mardy Fish and the Wilson Tennis are encouraging everyone to join them in NYC on August 26th for the world record attempt.
