Burry Port & Pembrey Cycling Club
A community cycling club to serve the people of Pembrey & Burry Port but open to anyone. We intend to run this club for all different levels of cyclists from beginners to cyclists who wish to compete and enter events for local charities. We run family days as well as training days to promote the joys and benefits of cycling around our fantastic countryside and cycle paths. We meet every Sunday morning at The Sidan, Pembrey. We ride at your pace.

Burry Port RFC
It all began in December 1880, a birth we hail today as an event of outstanding historial significance for our town. Rugby came to Burry Port and, thank goodness, it has never gone away. The club is keen to foster new contact with other clubs both on and off the field whether it is with senior or junior teams. The club has 2 senior teams, a youth team (under 19) and 9 junior teams (under 8 through to under 16). If you want to contact us for a game or to call at the club contact the Secretary where there will be a warm welcome for you.
