Will greyhound racing survive Wimbledon’s closure?

The closure of Wimbledon Stadium in March this year brought to an end the chance to see live greyhound racing in London and continues a worrying trend for lovers of the sport.

The first greyhound track in the UK opened in 1926 at Belle Vue in Manchester and within a year there were 40 stadiums across England and Scotland.

Attitudes to the sport were very different back then to those of today and there were soon 15 venues to watch live dog racing in the capital.

Fast forward 91 years and there are none, with Romford in Essex the nearest track for Londoners to visit.

Greyhound racing is not always seen in a good light, with animal welfare now such a big part of everyday life, and the fact that so many hounds were put down after ending their careers never sat well with dog lovers.

There will always be opposition but a lack of bodies through the turnstiles due to online betting and gambling in high streets has not helped.

However, Simon Banks, media and communications spokesman for the Greyhound Board of Great Britain, feels it is more to do with developers seeing the sites as hugely profitable.

He said: “I must emphasise that it is not to do with a decline in popularity, the problem is to do with rising property prices, especially in London, where it is hard to compete when the land can be turned into expensive apartments.”

One answer, he feels, is to build greyhound stadiums outside of the major cities and towns to protect them from being bulldozered at a later date - but would fans be willing to make the trip?

The days of 92,000 people watching the 1939 Derby Final at the White City Stadium are long gone but people still view it as a good night out and a way to make a few quid on the side.

But, inevitably, online betting has taken over and just last year £2.5 billion was gambled on the dogs with the bookies, proving that the sport is still popular and myracing.com’s free greyhound tips are on hand for anyone who fancies a flutter.

A night at the dogs is an enjoyable experience and facilities have improved, although there is still an element of the ‘pie and pea supper’ at some of the more provincial tracks.

This appeals to some but will not be a draw for the demanding youngsters of the day whose entertainment is more likely to come from a smart phone than watching animals hurtle round four bends chasing a plastic bunny.

Despite the setbacks, greyhound racing is here to stay and still receives television coverage on Sky from time to time, with well-informed presenters and tipsters giving the viewers excellent advice prior to races.

It is sport that is always going to polarise opinion and, with the Plough Lane site now being turned into a football stadium as AFC Wimbledon relocate to their spiritual home, it may be the end of greyhound racing in the capital but, like football, it is part of the nation’s history and will continue to provide entertainment for those who want it.
