Who Are We
Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) is a body corporate charged with providing strategic direction and leadership in the development, integrity and welfare of greyhound racing in NSW. It is the peak body of the sport and is responsible for ensuring the competitiveness and long-term commercial viability of greyhound racing for the benefit of participants, business partners and the community.
From July 2009, GRNSW became responsible for the regulatory affairs of the sport. This broadening of responsibilities was the result of a government decision to transfer the greyhound division functions of the Greyhound and Harness Racing Regulatory Authority (GHRRA) to GRNSW.
The business structure of GRNSW covers both the commercial and regulatory responsibilities with four core business units: Integrity, Industry & Strategy, Media & Content and Growth & Sustainability.
Flowing from the legislative amendments to the Greyhound Racing Act 2009, the industry representative Board of GRNSW was replaced by an independent Board in February 2012. The amendments make a person ineligible for appointment if they are an employee of a greyhound racing club or a member of the governing body of a greyhound racing club. Each Board member has a maximum tenure of eight years. Sustainability.
