Badminton players failed in an ambitious bid to break the world record on Saturday.

Not enough people turned up to Ebbisham Sports Club in Epsom to break the record for the longest rally, which required at least 120 players.

But badminton club chairman Oliver Creasey said they did get a rally of 62 people, aged 6 to 77. Tilly Ip takes part in a 24-hour badminton marathon

He said junior players at the Ebbisham Performance Centre also completed a 24-hour marathon.

He said: "There were junior members playing on court at all times from Friday 6pm to Saturday 6pm. "We have raised over £1,000 through sponsorship of this event and selling raffle tickets on the day."

The event raised money for the performance centre and MERU, a charity which provides equipment for disabled children.
