Our Impressions of Poole Stadium

Poole Speedway is held every Wednesday evening between March and October in the heart of Poole at the Wimborne Road Stadium - the Pirates' home since its inception in 1948. These days the football has long gone but the speedway still shares the grounds with the greyhound racing.

Poole Speedway regularly attracts crowds of 3000-4000 (some of the highest attendances in the League) which is about 50% capacity. The east stand which is situated on the home straight is part of the original infrastructure and in the traditional open air style and much favoured by 'the faithful'. The west stand on the back straight was re-built in the mid-1990s and is state-of-the-art glass-fronted stadia. In the west stand you'll find bars, snacks and a restaurant serving up quality fayre and refreshments on race nights. On the 3rd turn is situated the Track Shop for programmes, souvenirs, apparel, photos and raffle tickets etc. The 1st, 2nd and 4th turns have banked terracing offering great views of the action.

The stadium also provides ample parking facilities for a capacity crowd and is also only a 10 minute walk from buses and mainline trains to/from London Waterloo via Southampton and Basingstoke.? Meetings begin at 7.30pm and are usually over by about 10pm when the evening's entertainment generally concludes with a sponsored fireworks display.

If you're coming to Poole for the day the quayside is recommended for daytime food and pub life.
