National Summer Coursing 2022 (English)

On Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22, 2022, the WvCNL will organize the National Summer Coursing 2022. The competition will be held on our own site, the ice rink on the Nienoord estate, Nienoord 13-1KAN, 9351 AC Leek (navigation address: Schilhoek 2, 9351 AD, Leek).

With effect from 2022, the national Dutch regulations had changed on a number of important points. Before registering for this coursing, it is important to read these changes carefully:

1. Height measurements for Whippets and Italian Greyhounds are no longer carried out in the Netherlands. In Dutch national competitions within a class is only split by gender (provided that at least 3 participating dogs of each sex are entered). In practice, this means that the former standard classes and sprinter classes in the Whippets and Italian Greyhounds will run in one class from 2022. When registering you can only choose 'Whippet' or 'Italian Greyhound', sprinter classes no longer exist.
As always, in 2022 all dogs from all over Europe with a valid coursing license are welcome at our coursing competitions.

2. The allocation of the (R-)CACNL has been changed in the 'Handboek Statuten en Reglementen' of the Dutch Kennel Club (former Kynological Regulations) and has been aligned as much as possible with the CACIL rules. To compete for a CACNL, an Exc-show result at a national show (in the Netherlands or abroad) must be submitted with the registration, obtained at the age of at least 15 months. The (R-)CACNL is awarded with a minimum of three dogs in the class and can be awarded up to a maximum of sixth place in the final classification.
The exact rules, included in the 'Handboek Statuten en Reglementen'', can be found here.

Start of the race is at 10am, coursing licenses must be handed in between 8.30am and 9.30am.

Saturday: Whippets and Italian Greyhounds
Sunday: All other races

The entry fee is €20 for the first dog and €18.50 for all subsequent dogs of the same owner. The program sheet is free.

The online registration for the Summer Coursing is closed.

It is possible to run a license run prior to the competition. The costs of this are €5.00.

Registration closes on Wednesday 10 August 2022 at 8 p.m., or when the maximum number of dogs to register has been reached.

To be eligible for the CACNL, you must submit proof of an EXC-qualification obtained at a national show (in the Netherlands or abroad) at the minimum age of 15 months, in an adult class, at the same time as you register. This can be done by uploading it via the online registration form.
