Giant Paddle Ball

A 14-foot-high paddle ball sculpture was recently installed in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood as part of an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most controlled paddle balls used at the same time. The attempt was unsuccessful, but the sculpture still stands.

[Angles87, 09/29/2018]

The sculpture and world record attempt were dreamed up by three young men who run a local pinball parlor. The paddle is meant to be a permanent sculpture, symbolizing the neighborhood's efforts to "bounce back." Paddle Ball was invented in Ohio.
