Greyhound Centre is an evolving complex that has recently opened
a state of the art greyhound track that is purpose built to be
the elite schooling/trialling facility in the Country. We have
laid 1100 tons of top quality WBB Silica Sand to give the best
running surface possible, even under severest weather
The County has had a huge amount of rain in July and August, yet
the track has always been safe and race-able and visitors often
surprised and what a consistent and well drained track it is.
The centre is also home to greyhound trainer
and her kennel of 80 dogs currently in the process of switching
tracks from Sheffield to Nottingham.
As well as training and schooling greyhounds, Dunham Greyhound
Centre also offers rearing and whelping facilities with the best
food and attention guaranteed at every stage of the greyhounds
Centre - when and where.....
Dunham Track is set in the beautiful
countryside of Nottinghamshire. It
is based on the A57 road linking
East Markham to Lincoln. The track
is open Monday through to Saturday
and trials take place between
10.00am and 2.00pm. It is advised to
to book a trial slot before arrival
to ensure availability.
The track itself is brand new and
has a circumference of 440m, to put
this into context, the only other
tracks in the country bigger than
Dunham are Sittingbourne, Hove and
Swindon. The wide bends are
perfectly cambered with long
straights which dogs find easy to
run first look. We trial over 275
meters for the sprint, 480 meters
for the four bends and 705 meters
for the six bend trip.
Trials are all digitally timed using the Alge Timing System.
Each runner receives a digital print out of the trial which
records the following splits....
Sprint distance records a sectional to the first bend and the
Standard distance records a sectional at the winning line first
time, the third bend and finally a finishing time at the line.
Stayers distance records sectionals at the first bend, the
winning line first time, the fifth bend and finally the finish
