Alumni in Ontario Canada join hands to break Guinness world record


The HKBU Alumni Association of Ontario joined the Hong Kong Joint Universities Alumni (Ontario) to set a new Guinness World Record of most people bouncing table tennis balls on table tennis rackets for 10 seconds at a single venue last week. The 343 participants broke the old record made by 250 people.

Alumna Sophia Chan, Chairperson of HKBU Alumni Association of Ontario and Joint Chairperson of Hong Kong Joint Universities Alumni (Ontario), said the event was held to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of Canada, as well as the 20th anniversary of HKSAR. She added that the event was not only creative and meaningful but also demonstrated the united spirit of alumni from Hong Kong institutions.
