The greyhound track at Aldershot was an independent flapping track which was located on the Oxendon Road at Tongham with reference 0° 44' W 51° 14' N and a grid reference of SU8849. It first held racing in 1950 on a track with circumference 390 metres.

The sprint distance was 254 metres, the standard distance 462 metres, the long distance races were held over 626 metres and the marathons over 842 metres.The principal race was the March Hare Stakes.

It closed its gates for the final time in 1992 and there is no evidence remaining of the former track which is now covered by the A331.

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.
