The World's Largest Twister Mat was in Belchertown, MA

On June 18, 2010, every student in the Belchertown School District played a game of Twister on the largest Twister Mat the world has ever seen. The Twister Mat was 42 mats long and 24 Twister Mats wide. Working with Twister Mats donated by Hasbro, Inc. Drew Gatesman and Michael Seward organized the event to kick off a fundraiser for a Boundless Playground, an effort they co-founded.

The playground will be named Jessica's Boundless Playground in memory of a 2009 Belchertown High School Graduate who passed away later that year. Jessica Martins lived with Rett Syndrome and required the use of a wheelchair. However, Jessica did not let her condition hold her back. Boundless Playgrounds are designed to include children of ALL abilities. They also accomodate parents and grandparents with disabilities to play with their children.
