The Scottish town of Ayr has had 3 greyhound tracks in the past, the least known of them being at Tams Bridge and located at 4° 37' W 55° 28' N. It held its inaugural meeting on 16th December 1933 and operated successfully as an independent track for almost 40 years.

It closed its gates for the final time on 30th December 1972 and a curling rink now covers the ground on which the former track once stood.

I am grateful to Jon Seddon for the following link to a map showing the whereabouts of the old track

This section gives a comprehensive picture of the badges produced by the track throughout the ages, but only provides the briefest of glimpses of its history. For those wishing to undertake further research we can recommend a visit to
