What is Western Province Practical Shooting Association (WPPSA)?

WPPSA organises and controls amateur practical shooting in the Western Province region of South Africa. WPPSA affiliates clubs and individual competitors to the national practical shooting body (SAPSA). We organise several provincial trials every year, as well as the Western Province champs toward the end of each year. In addition we sanction several inter-club competitions during the year. We conduct training courses for Range and Safety Officers, and hold development clinics for new shooters. WPPSA is run by councilers nominated by our member clubs (see the Constitution for details). The executive committee (Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary & Treasurer) are responsible for administrative affairs of the council. Exco members do not have voting rights on the council.

For a list of WPPSA Officers please refer to the Contact us page.

How to join

First you need to join one of our affiliated clubs. Most clubs welcome visitors, so it is a good idea to try several clubs before deciding to join. Consider the facilities, the distance you need to travel, assistance for entry-level competitors etc. Once you have joined an affiliated club, speak to the club's councilor about joining WPPSA. Your affiliation fee for WPPSA will include affiliation to SAPSA. We recommend that you also join the South African Gun-owners Association (SAGA).
