|ROTHERHAM HELLABY 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 South Yorkshire town of Rotherham had at least 3 greyhound tracks in the past, the least well known and earliest to open being on Bateman Road in Hellaby, and situated at 1° 14' W 53° 25' N. The track held its inaugural meeting on 7th April 1928 and continued to race for 2 years.|
|The final meeting was held in 1930, although there is still evidence today of the previous existence of a greyhound track.|
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
