Poole Stadium is a greyhound racing venue and speedway track located in the town centre of Poole, Dorset in England. The stadium is owned by the Borough of Poole. It was built in the early 1930s in an attempt to provide a source of entertainment to the residents of Poole during the Great Depression. It is also often referred to as Wimborne Road, which is a road that runs adjacent to the stadium. During weekdays, the stadium's large car park is used to provide parking for Poole Hospital's park and ride scheme.HistoryFootballIn 1933 local semi-professional football team Poole Town F.C. moved to Poole Stadium where they began to play their home games in the Western Football League. In the 1946/47 season they had a run in the qualifying rounds of the FA Cup which took them through to a first round match against Queens Park Rangers. Poole Town drew 2–2 at Loftus Road, but lost 6–0 in the replay in front of a then record breaking Poole Stadium crowd of 10,224. They again reached the first round in the 1962/63 season and held Watford F.C. to a 2–2 draw at Vicarage Road, but lost the replay at Poole Stadium in front of an 11,155 crowd.

    If you have never attended a Greyhound race go at least once in his life. These dogs are beautiful animals, while muscle. Their speed of 70km is more than impressive. On a 450-meter race if you miss the departure you will not see much! Except for replay on the screens. If you bet one pound per race on twelve races you will not lose much but spend a great evening.

  • Greyhound racing and speedway are both fantastic nights out. I would recommend using the restaurant. It's views are brilliant. Unfortunately the food could be a little more exciting but then it not that expensive.
  • Went here with a work group for a greyhounds night, and paid for the 6 party deal. Which was well worth it. Good night had by all.
  • Good value night out. Food is very basic but edible. Staff are chirpy and helpful
  • We've been many times and normally it's a great night. The last time it was rained off, which isn't their fault, but it was so poorly handled and I've still not received the vouchers they promised, so I've had to drop some stars. Hopefully we have better luck next time.
  • Good night out. Something different to do. Food is good for the price. Bangers and mash from the restaurant highly recommended.

Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.
