Splashing World Records with Ipswich Hospital Foundation


If you’ve ever wanted to see your efforts splashed across a Guinness Book of Records, here is your chance.

The Ipswich Hospital Foundation is attempting to break the world record for the Largest Aqua Class next Sunday, the 18th of February.

Ipswich Hospital Foundation CEO Phillip Bell said the IHF’s Fit4Life Fitness Activities are all about being active no matter how big or small the group.

“We are calling on the community to join the attempt at the Guinness World Record for the Largest Aqua Class,” Mr Bell said.

“To break the record we need 320 of you to join us at the Bundamba Swim Centre.

“The Ipswich community has a history of record breaking following an official Australian Record achieved in 2017 with 256 people participating in an Aqua class.

“The morning will include a few formalities as part of the Guinness World Record attempt and following that we are grateful to DU Swimming’s Aqua Instructor Bec Dakin for planning a fun workout for all abilities.”

Participants during the record attempt must follow the instructor’s moves for the full hour, and have to be over the age of 11 and height of 120cm.

You can RSVP for the event at www.ihfoundation.org.au.
