|NOTTINGHAM OLYMPIC 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.
|Although Nottingham is more famous now for its Colwick Park racecourse and adjacent greyhound stadium, the city once had a greyhound track located on the Olympic Grounds on Trent Lane and situated at 1° 7' W 52° 56' N. The track was launched in August 1931, sharing its facilities with the Cities successful speedway team.|
|Racing continued at the venue until September 1932 when plans were afoot to develop the area and build a much grander stadium. See Nottingham White City.|
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
