The city of Leicester has had a number of greyhound tracks in the past, the earliest one to open being on Aylestone road and situated at 1° 8' W 52° 37 ' N. It held its inaugural meeting on 24th September 1927 and raced under NGRC rules. It only operated for a short time and closed its gates in 1929.

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
