Are you interested in finding out how you can be a part of this great sport. We can help you get started by linking you with a local club within your community. Do you enjoy taking care of animals? Do you enjoy friendly competition? Do you want a hobby that the whole family can take part in? This could be just the hobby for you. Pigeons are one of the most underrated species. Some interesting facts are:

  • The stock markets of the world used racing pigeons until 1966 to get the news of the day trading from one city to another.
  • Today racing pigeons are used in humanitarian efforts to fly blood out of the deepest jungles in Africa to be tested for the aids virus.
  • That Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II alongside her love for horses and corgi dogs she also races pigeons from the Royal Lofts at Sandringham.
  • That racing pigeons have been known to fly 700 miles in a single day.
  • That many major world armies still retain their racing pigeon flocks.
