10 Year Anniversary 2024

Aprils meeting marked the 10th Anniversary of your Sporting Whippet Club.

Dedicated committee members and members alike have made the club what it is today and it continues to go from strength to strength. So many people comment on how friendly and welcoming we are and that is a credit to our members and we thank you.


Time has been spent over the Winter break collating all the points tables from the past 10 years.


We will be spotlighting a ‘Top 10’ from said tables at each meeting from now until October culminating with the award for the highest overall scoring dog, or bitch, of all time.


To date 320 passports have been issued by SWC so if your dog makes it into the Top 10 it is a huge achievement and one worthy of celebration.


Our April meeting saw awards for the Top 10 Open Dogs over the last 10 years:


Twiggen Tit for Tat owned by Catriona Ryan placed 1st. During the 2017 season Trilby won six stakes and the Open Finals Day Stake.


Diana Webbers Dark Wing was runner- up. Raven won six stakes including the Open Finals Day Stakes in 2016.
