The Spartanburg County Racing Pigeon club is located in North Western South Carolina

The Spartanburg County Racing Pigeon club is located in North Western South Carolina.

Centered around Spartanburg, SC, we have members as far south as Clinton, SC and as far north as Tryon, NC.

We are sanctioned by the American Racing Union and we are a member club of the Piedmont Racing Pigeon Combine.

We are also members of the Dixie Southern Racing Pigeon Association and in 2009 hosted the Annual Dixie Southern Convention held in Spartanburg, SC.


The Piedmont Racing Pigeon Combine is a combination of clubs that compete against each other as a whole and as individual clubs.

The ability to compete in the combine increases the competition level and helps keep costs down. There are currently 5clubs competing in the Combine:
