National Autumn Coursing 2022 (English)

On Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd October 2022, the WvCNL organizes the National Autumn Coursing 2022. The competition will be held on the beach of the swimming lake of the Ronostrand, Amerika 16, 9342 TC Een (navigation coordinates: 53'6'0''N 6'22 '19''E).

More information about the Ronostrand can be found here.


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 Coursing is on both days at 10:00 am, coursing licenses must be handed in between 8.30 and 9.30 am.

The entry fee is €22.50 for the first dog, all subsequent dogs from the same owner are €20.00. The program sheet is free.

Note: The breed schedule can still change as a result of the definitive numbers of registrations in the different classes.

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

Registration closes on Wednesday, October 12, 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 a 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.
