The Southern African Wingshooters Association was formed by a group of leading clay and wingshooters in South Africa. It is South Africa's only SAPS-accredited national association dedicated exclusively to wingshooting in all its forms and to the conservation of gamebirds in Southern Africa. We offer our members exlusive bird shooting opportunities, we advise landowners on wildfowl and game bird management and we liaise with the authorities on conservation issues, shotgun shooting, gun legislation, shooting seasons and hunting licences. Overseas members are welcome! They can also join in local shoots!!

This means that membership of the association is accepted by the Police as proof of the status of a member applying for listing as Dedicated Hunter for the purposes of obtaining a shotgun licence in terms of Act 75 of 1969.
