SIS greyhound service returns to pre-lockdown levels

Sports Information Services (SIS) has outlined plans to return to ‘full strength’ with the resumption of its greyhound service from 29 June.

In line with the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) guidance, which will see the removal of the 20 minute gap between races, SIS will be able to operate over 640 races a week, including a return to early morning races.

The SIS Greyhound Service will also offer coverage from seven Irish racing tracks, including Cork, Kilkenny, Limerick, Mullingar, Tralee, Waterford, and Youghal. The Irish addition will bolster the number of races offered by SIS ‘back to the level pre-lockdown’.

Gordon Bissett, Greyhound Operations Manager at SIS, said: “It’s great to see greyhound racing back to the pre-lockdown levels. It has been a difficult time for the industry, but we have worked closely with our partner tracks to resume racing safely and have been pleased with everyone’s efforts.

“Having Irish greyhound racing return to the service is also very exciting and will help provide our operator customers with competitive racing action 14 hours a day, offering over 33,500 races each year.”
