Devastated with it's closure!
Mar 2017 • Friends
A night at the dogs is never a disappointment. It's such a fun evening and the atmosphere is always electric! I love the diversity of the crowds. We've been coming here for around 7 years and have always enjoyed it.
It was the last remaining dogs track in London, but sadly last night it closed. The turnout was fantastic and I'm proud to have been able to be part of the final night. 89 years of entertainment and now it's history.

Final weeks of greyhound racing - glad it's closing down.
Mar 2017 • Family
A large stadium, most of it derelict - entrance wasn't signposted or lit, and you had to walk around half the stadium to get in. It was like a hidden secret. The parts that are kept open are functional - indoor spaces were full up well before races started, so we went outside. Seating on steps, some plastic seating; if it wasn't broken, it was smothered in bird mess. Managed to get a drink at the bar (excellent affordable offer, £3 entry including a drink and race card which dampened the blow), but once races started, it was impossible to get to the bar - waited one hour in the queue (more fool me) for 3 drinks, agency staff hadn't a clue, and as the place is closing, no will to serve properly and no management to help struggling servers. The crowd was good humoured thankfully.
I was glad to go for the experience, children enjoyed it, although watching dogs fall in the race was distressing for them; but I'm glad we witnessed the end of dogs at Wimbledon.

A night at Wimbledon Dog Stadium
Mar 2017 • Friends
A great night out a group of friends, a couple, a family or even a business night out.

We booked into the Grandstand Restaurant. A reasonable price, and the food is what you would expect e.g. burger and chips with other item available but with a supplement. The food was acceptable.

A guy would come along while at your table and take your bets for each race rather than having to leave your table and queue up each time for a bet.

The service was good and we tipped our waitress at the end of the evening.

As I said, a great night our for our group. Only a shame that the Mayor of London has decided to allow the site to be knocked down and redeveloped. The last race meeting here is the 25th March 2017, so if you can get then I suggest you go. This is london's last Dog racing Stadium - A piece of local history will disappear.

Banger racing
Nov 2016 • Friends
Been to watch the dogs a few times but this was my first time watching the banger racing. So much fun; the noise and atmosphere was amazing. However there wasn't as much 'banging' as I've seen at other places, just a lot of racing which was a bit of a shame

Great evening...going to miss it when it goes
Oct 2016 • Family
I think my title says it all. It was a really good evening and the atmosphere is so much fun!
The stadium does look a little tired and does need some love!

I'm going to miss the dogs at Wimbledon, however for now the free drink, entry and race card for 4 people made our evening extra special!

Did I win....a couple of times!
Would I come back....errrr yes!
Will I miss Wimbledon dogs.....YES!

Dog Racing-Worth to visit, service needs improvement
Oct 2016 • Friends
Last night, four of us went for a greyhound. It is a great experience and everyone should try it once ( even if you are not betting ). On entry, the security was very nice and felt welcomed. The Stadium was clean and tidy, lots of places outside and inside. We didn't dine at the restaurant only wanted to grab some fast food and watch the race. The variety wasn't too much. The quality of the food was ok, not great, not bad, but the service was under the average, lack of basic customer service.
Overall I would recommend to try and visit the race, it was a fantastic night out, with lots of fun.

Stock car racing

A brilliant atmosphere and great racing experience with lots of different types of car racing. Very exciting and dramatic.

A great evening of entertainment and worth a visit sooner rather than later as it may not be there!!

Go before you are saying that you wish you had.

A tired old venue which is falling apart at the seams.

All said and done the main stand ( which is the only one that seems to be open ) is buzzing with atmosphere .

Don't expect a top and tails experience as this is one for your average Joe Soap namely me .

A great night out for the boys or girls.

Gone to the Dogs!
Jul 2016 • Family
So, last Saturday Night the family went out to Wimbledon Dogs,

The easiest way I think to share the experience is a Pro's & Con's list, So here we go:

PRO's

Great Fun
Lots of Laugh's
Have a bit of a flutter

CON's

Not a Mecca for Foodie's
Run down facilities
Learn to Queue

This really can be a great night in the Restaurant or with a Table by the Windows, with a group of friends and Pre-Book is a Must.

Checkout Groupon for Great Offers: We got Entry, a Burger & Pint for £4 each,
VFM...YES!

(Upgrade to a HotDog its an extra £1, Burgers are not Good)
