HINCKLEY 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 the scans of badges on this page.

 

Nutts Lane was the venue for the Hinckley greyhound stadium which was first owned by Joe Grant before his son inherited the track on his death. The first meeting at the track was held in 1936 and throughout its history the track has traditionally held meetings on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.

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
