DOVER GREYHOUND STADIUM

This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the stadium. I am indebted to Richard English for helping to construct this page. 

The busy Kent port of Dover once had a greyhound track which was located on Buckland Avenue on ground¬†known as Willow Walk Meadow with reference 1° 17' E 51° 8' N. It held its opening meeting on 26th December 1932. The meeting was not well supported by the locals and struggled on for 3 years before closing in 1935.

The site on which the track once stood became a housing estate.

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
