The Welsh Target Shooting Federation (Welsh: Ffederasiwn Saethu Targedau Cymru) (WTSF) is the governing body for shooting sports in Wales. It represents the member bodies of the WTSF—the Welsh Airgun Association (WAA), the Welsh Clay Target Shooting Association (WCTSA), the Welsh Rifle Association (WRA) and the Welsh Small-bore Rifle Association (WSRA)—by promoting and developing shooting sports in Wales.[1][2][3]

Access for members of the WTSF to the South Wales Police shooting range, Bridgend, was arranged in January 2010, following negotiations between the Welsh Assembly Government and Sport Wales. Commonwealth Games and European Championship squad members are among those able to train at the site. Teams had previously had to travel to continenal Europe for their nearest training facilities.[4]

The Welsh Target Shooting Federation is based in Cardiff.[5]
