NWCX League Round 3: Brymbo Sports & Social ‘Cross Wrexham 21 November 2021

November 21 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Round 3 of the 2021/22 North Wales Cyclo-cross League: Brymbo Sports & Social Complex, College Hill, Brymbo, Wrexham LL11 5TF

North Wales Cyclocross League welcomes competitors to  Brymbo Sports & Social Complex. 

The centre was previously owned by the famous Brymbo Steel Works, a company within the United Engineering Steel Group. When the furnaces fell silent and the  works closed in 1990, Brymbo Sports & Social Complex Ltd succeeded as the new owner and now operates as a member’s club renowned for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere.  The club serves Wrexham hosting sporting contests, formal functions and private hire events all year round.

Located three miles outside of Wrexham,  its facilities comprise two football pitches, four tennis courts, two squash courts, a bowling green, and a cricket ground. The sports fields sit amidst rolling parkland and woods.   The cyclocross course will make full use of the outstanding grounds.   We are the guests of Gareth Lloyd, General Manager,  and Groundsmen Anthony Beck and Paul Morris who maintain the Complex.

Sign-on will take place in the Complex adjacent to the car park.

There is ample parking in the Main Car Park. Please ensure access for squash club members.

Male & female WCs are located in the complex.  As usual please treat facilities with respect.

Parents:  children are made very welcome at cyclocross races. If unsure  don’t be afraid to ask at HQ. The North Wales series prioritises racing for children. Most beginners make rapid progress.
