Conker: the Wisley world record attempt

While health and safety regulations have meant conkers have faced short shrift in the school yard in recent years, the invitation to pop down to one of Surrey's most famous tourist attractions and commence battle was too much for many.


Over 500 people polished up their conkers and revised their rule books as RHS Garden Wisley hosted a Guinness World Record attempt for the most simultaneous matches of conkers played at one time on Saturday.


After independent adjudicators confirmed their success, RHS Wisley will have to sit tight and wait for Guinness to officially acknowledge the record in time for 2012s book of Guinness World Records.
