Dove refers to the smaller species, although it is not used consistently.
As far as I know, the racing/homing species are referred to as
pigeons, not doves.  Some people put wooden boxes in their
gardens for wild pigeons/doves to roost in and these are
called dovecotes no matter what species roost there.

According to the Royal Pigeon Racing Association, the clubs
seem to be called "pigeon clubs."
