GRNSW Consultation

Greyhound Racing NSW recently embarked on one of its most important projects in recent times, a statewide tour to consult and engage with participants and stakeholders on the future of the sport.

Over a two month period, GRNSW Chairman Adam Casselden and Chief Executive Officer Rob Macaulay are undertaking a tour of regional NSW, criss-crossing the State to engage with participants and stakeholders around all facets of the sport.

The tour began in Grafton on March 24 where a large crowd attended and discussed several pertinent matters with the CEO and Chairman, and was followed by another successful day at Goulburn on April 19.

Similar events were then held at Tamworth on May 4, the following day at Wagga on May 5, and then at Ladbrokes Gardens on May 11. The next event will be held at Dubbo on May 18 then the next day at Richmond on May 19.

“This is an exciting time for greyhound racing in NSW with more races than ever before, more prizemoney than ever, better industry rehoming numbers than ever and fewer track deaths than ever. But we want to get better and better every day, and listening to participants and working on their good ideas is part of that,” Mr Macaulay said.

“Now it’s time to work together to make other improvements across the board, and we’re looking forward to that. That’s what we’re about: constant improvement.

“I am encouraging everyone to come along to these consultation sessions. We want participants and stakeholders to give us feedback on all topics, but in particular we are seeking good ideas and feedback on tracks, track safety, rehoming, injury treatment, grading and programming.”

While some may not be able to attend the consultation sessions, Mr Macaulay said they still want to hear from as many people as possible with ideas for the future and feedback on what is and isn’t working well right now.

Participants are stakeholders are encouraged to head to the feedback page here and leave their thoughts and comments.
