COVID-19 Response and Updates
Greyhound racing will continue in South Australia, with further restrictions to race-days to ensure that our participants and greyhounds are able to continue their racing operations, in the safest manner possible.

Owners and members of the general public will be allowed to attend tracks from today but it is suggested to book in advance in order to avoid disappointment.

Venues are unable to operate at full capacity and it will be necessary to turn people away if the COVID limit is reached.

GRSA has now also received confirmation that it can recommence offering hospitality at each of our venues.
