The south coast seaside town of Bournemouth had two greyhound tracks in the past. The first was on the ill-fated racecourse, but only operated for part of 1928. The second one was situated on Victoria Park and located at 1° 53' W 50° 44' N. It opened its gates for the first time on 23rd June 1928 racing under rules.

It ran successfully for 6 years before closing on 29th September 1934.

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 where further reading can be undertaken.
