The Guinness Book of Records has approved a new world record set by four Irish men for the longest ever doubles tennis match.
The four clocked up a record-breaking 62 hours of play at Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Dublin last July.
The Guinness Book of Records has approved the submission for the longest marathon doubles tennis record.
The submission included 62 hours of video tape.
The four former Davis Cup players - David Mullins, James Cluske, Daniel O'Neill and Luke McGuire - stopped playing with a scoreline of 77 sets to 72.
The record event was a major fundaiser for the Enjoy Tennis programme, which has to date enabled almost 1,000 players with a disability to learn and play the game in 70 clubs around Ireland.
The attempt raised almost €20,000 for Enjoy Tennis.
Mr Cluskey said he was "absolutely delighted" for the record to be ratified.
"Looking back for me our mental toughness and resilience got us through.
"We had a plan and for the most part we stuck to that plan.
"I think the support of the other players, volunteers and our families really helped us and there is no way we could have done it alone."
Daniel O'Neill said: "Thinking back, during my toughest moments it was the unwavering belief of the other guys, my parents and friends, combined with the incredible knowledge of our trainer, Leo Daniel Ryan, that got me through it.
"It has been great to see how Enjoy Tennis has grown in the meantime and I am proud of everyone who was involved and played a part in this huge event."
David Mullins added: "It would not have been possible without a huge amount of organisation and dedication from all the stakeholders involved in the project.
"This acknowledgment from GWR makes our achievements even that much sweeter."
Two independent witnesses were present at all times to ensure that the strict rules for a world record attempt set down by the Guinness Book of World Records were adhered to.
