The Whippet Club News & Archives – All Purposes
DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION AND WITHOUT CONFIRMATION OF WHEN THE OVERALL LOCKDOWN WILL END THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO WCRA OPENS OR CHAMPIONSHIPS.
WE WILL UPDATE THE WEBSITE WITH INFORMATION WHEN WE KNOW IF AND WHEN WE WILL BE ABLE TO COMMENCE RACING.
NEW FOR 2020
This year, the WCRA Golden Anniversary, we are offering the chance to win a portrait of your dog and also the opportunity to sponsor weight groups in the WCRA Championships.
We have on offer the opportunity for people to sponsor one or more weight groups in the Main Championships, Veteran Crowns and Superstars Veteran Sprint.
The cost for sponsorship is £10 per group per Championships or £30 for all 4 Main Championships for 1 group. Veteran Group sponsorship is £10 per group or £15 for 1 group for both events.
There is an option to commemorate a person or dog for a specific weight group or groups which will be published and displayed in the Program accordingly.

To enable better ease-of-use of the Superstars League updates and results, we are taking the decision to move away from web-based tables..
The racing diary has been quite congested this year with numerous events scheduled and, unfortunately, several clashes. In order to facilitate choice for racers and clubs alike, we have taken the decision to publish our 2019 dates as early as possible to enable people to plan ahead.
These lists, provided for access by breed-club secretaries and veterinary surgeons, are updated regularly.
A damp weekend in the Marches. We were spared the “traditional” whippet-racers’ day – continuous rain, sun comes out for the presentation if you’re lucky

We were all looking forward to our First WCRA Championships being held at Ryemeadows Club track but, despite our best efforts, heavy rain from the Friday evening, deep into Saturday meant we had to make the very difficult decision not to run the First Championships on Sunday, 29th April.
