Project Description

Throwing Rackets tells the story of how two tennis players from Galway, Ireland, create and re-capture a world record. It also looks at the psychological side of the game and gives tips on how to go about setting a world record.
“recalls the stay of Mike Geraghty and Francis Power’s effort to freak the world record, not once but twice, for playing doubles non-stop for 36 hours (I kid you not), thus entering the Guinness Book of Records. Many astonishing facts permeate the pages of this book, not least that we the Irish, as a nation, hold more world records per capita than any other, while Chapter S on Motivation makes compulsive reading.” Peadar 0 Dowd (Galway historian and author)
