Nottingham Hockey Centre on University Boulevard was the venue for a world record as the University of Nottingham Men’s Hockey Club took on the Royal Air Force.
The two sides went head-to-head for 55 hours and five minutes in a game of hockey, beating the previous world record of 53 hours and 20 minutes.
The reason behind this is to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund and Help for Heroes – and the game raised a fantastic amount of more than £5,500.
To add glamour to the occasion, a helicopter brought in the match ball to start off proceedings.
Jack Tranter, one of the organisers, said: “It was a brilliant event and everyone had so much fun.
“It was great to be part of something so special and to break the record was amazing.”
Local estate agents Nicholas Humphreys, sponsors of University of Nottingham Men’s Hockey Club, were on hand to support the event with a table of refreshments.
Tents were set up by the side of the pitch to enable anyone to get some sleep, if they needed it, not that Jack really got any.
“I managed less than two hours sleep in the whole time,” he continued.
“When this was being planned, 55 hours did not seem a lot in my head.
“But once it became reality, it really was a long time, but very rewarding.”
For the record, the Royal Air Force beat the University of Nottingham Men’s Hockey Club by 478 to 423.
