A little about Us...

    The NPWRA was formed in July 2009.

    There has been organised Pedigree Whippet Racing in the UK for many years, run by a sub committee of the Whippet Club. Many racers have felt for a long time that the structure of that organisation no longer worked as an effective and fair way of running Pedigree racing.

    The events of 2009 proved these concerns and it was felt that the only way to guarantee the continuation of competitive pure Pedigree Whippet racing was by the formation of a new organisation. So the NPWRA was born.

    The first NPWRA National Championships were held on August 2, 2009 at the Independent track in Cotheridge, Worcestershire. These Championships were very well supported by the majority of experienced Pedigree Whippet racers.

    Since then the committee and advisers have been working hard to ensure the foundations are in place to carry the NPWRA into the future.

    Now going into our eighth year of organising Championship racing, although not deep with history we believe it is quality, not quantity that continues to be the driving force to our success. We thank you all for your support.
