The City of Norwich has been blessed with a number of tracks throughout the years, notably at Boundary Park and Spowston Road. The Boundary Park track opened on 6th October 1932 and operated as an NGRC track.  A track at the Firs had already opened earlier that year on 30th July. By 1939 there were a further two track operating at Thorpe, opening on 17th June 1933, and the City Stadium which first held racing on 25th July 1939.

Track Records, as of 1947, are shown below together with an indication of how fast the time is in comparison to other tracks, both for currently open and defunct tracks, in the UK. Ratings are between 0 and 100, where 100 is an extremely fast time and reflects the speed of the track, tightness of the circuit and quality of greyhound visiting the tracks. I am grateful to Tony Nash for providing the data.

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.
