|LONDON (MITCHAM) 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 Mitcham area of London once had a greyhound track built around the perimeter of the local Streatham and Mitcham Rugby Union Club and situated at 0° 9' W 51° 24' N. The track opened in 1936 but was not as popular as some of its more illustrious London neighbours and ceased racing within a year of opening.|
|The ground on which the former track once stood is now covered by housing and gardens.|
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
