The Lincolnshire seaside resort of Skegness has in recent times become the home to Greyhound Racing under a more permanent role. But the sport had played a part in the towns history during the mid 1960’s and early 1970’s on a temporary track laid around the pitch of Skegness Football Club. It is known that it had a straight course and also two and three bend races were tried with the hounds chasing a ball hare type lure over distances of 220, 225 and 240 yards. The football ground still remains hosting amateur football and is situated less than a mile from the seafront along the A158 Burgh Road.
