A GROUP of 32 inline roller hockey players are attempting to break a world record by playing for 30 hours non-stop.

The match is currently being played at Solent Arena, in Standard Way, in Fareham.

It has been organised by the Fareham Wildcats, with players from across the area and beyond taking part.

Players cannot leave the arena even when they are resting after their hour-long shifts, or they would void the record attempt.

Each time they play they earn five minute ‘convenience’ breaks.

The current record is 20 hours and 20 minutes.

But the players at Solent Arena, who started today at 10am, hope to hit 30 hours – or even longer.

Setti Mulari, 34, from Fareham Wildcats, said: ‘If we can go longer, we will go longer.

‘I’m absolutely surprised that they are not slowing down.

‘People are still playing like it’s a league game.’
