Juggling World Records


These are “qualifying” records. To be able to say you have “qualified” with a certain number, you need to catch each object at least twice. To “flash” requires just one catch of each object.

11 Balls Alex Barron (UK) 2017 He has also flashed 12, 13 & 14 balls, so maybe one day we will have a new world record!
10 Rings Anthony Gatto (USA) 2005 Albert Lucas (USA) was able to flash 13 rings back in 2002.
8 Clubs Anthony Gatto (USA) 2006 Willy Colombaioni (USA) has video footage of also qualifying 8 Clubs in 2015.


556 Catches of 3 Balls in one minute David Rush (USA)
3 Chainsaws (94 catches) Ian Stewart (Canada)
12mins 50secs – Longest Duration Juggling 3 Objects while Suspended Upside Down Quinn Spicker (Canada)

You will see that when it comes to Juggling any high number of objects, Anthony Gatto is always someone who sets a trail for others to try and beat! He is also heavily involved in organising lots of Joggling World Records which you can find on my Silly Juggling World Records page!

Further Resources

There are lots of unofficial “World Records” submitted to the Juggling Records Database on the excellent Internet Juggling Database – so that’s a good place to have a look to find one that you think you can work towards beating, then you could always file a request with Guinness to see if they would recognise an official attempt at it, and you too could be a record breaker!

Another good web page with lots of fun facts is the Official Guinness World Records website. Type in “Juggling” and let the websites search engine pull up the best results – http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com
