The Whippet Club – Limited Member’s Show

The show was held on 14th January 2012.

The Judge of the Racing and Lure Coursing Classes was Mrs Elaine Walker.


The Whippet Club’s January show is a timely event and many use it as a jump start into a fitness regime for the new season of competition.

It was a pleasant surprise to enter the Haddenham Village Hall and see a single large ring; replacing the usual two-ring style. The extra space outside the ring was appreciated equal to that inside; the racing/coursing exhibits certainly benefitted from the opportunity to stride out.

The JR Whippet Rescue stall displayed their many wares alongside Sue & Terry Ward’s goodies. There was also a fine selection of prizes in the raffle and the usual excellent selection of refreshments which all contributed to an enjoyable day.
