The West Australia Pistol Association (WAPA) is the state’s peak body for the sport of target pistol shooting accountable for the growth and development of the safe and challenging sport of Pistol Shooting. We are a member of the national body Pistol Australia (PA) which provides our members with direct access to 16 events that are all graded to suit all levels of members and also includes categories for athletes with a disability. This link also provides members with the pathway to international competitions and the only shooting body which allows members to be selected for Commonwealth and Olympic Games. Coaching and officiating training are available to all members at no cost.

As the sport’s peak body, the West Australia Pistol Association provides leadership to over 30 clubs throughout the state. WAPA is governed by an elected volunteer committee who conduct the everyday business of the sport.
