Record For The Most Taps



There is some confusion to who actually holds the record for most taps per minute. According to guinnessworldrecords.com, Tony Adams holds the record for most taps per minute. He achieved this title on June 19, 2009 on the Television New Zealand’s Good Morning Show at the Avalon TV Studio in Wellington, New Zealand. Adams pounded out 1,056 taps in a minute which is an average of 17.6 taps per second.

At the same time, it is commonly held that Roy Castle holds this title. On January 14, 1973, Castle tapped 1,440 taps in a minute which equals 24 taps per second.

Finally, it is believed Stephen Gare later beat this record with 32 taps per second adding up to 1,920 a minute.

Though Tony Adams may officially hold the record for the moment, in the hearts and minds of avid tap fans, who holds the title depends on who you ask.
