Huntersville Man Heads To Italy For World Paddleball Record

A Huntersville man gets a free trip to Milan, Italy, next week for... paddleball. In fact, Steve Langley - who dubs himself The Paddleball King - will go for a world paddleball record on Italian television, Corneliusnews.net reports. The program is called Lo Show dei Record. Mr. Langley expects to establish the record at six paddle balls bounced simultaneously by holding three paddles in each hand. The rules of the show stipulate that he must continue paddling for 30 seconds without a miss, tangle or bobble. Mr. Langley said that represents about 150-160 bounces with each ball.
