Sheffield takes the Guinness World Record for Most people playing hopscotch simultaneously

On May 20 2019, Sheffield came together to beat the hopscotch world record.

Children and adults from across the city spent the morning warming up and generally having fun in preparation for the world record attempt.

664 people broke the existing record, made up of schoolchildren and their teachers, businesses and passers by contributed towards becoming the city with the most people playing hopscotch simultaneously.

The event was staged as a joint effort between the council, SIV, schools, businesses and a host of other supporters and organisers.
