Welsh Homing Union

The Welsh Homing Pigeon Union (WHPU), founded 25th November 1933, administers and serves as the governing body for pigeon racing in Wales.

The WHPU is run by elected officers and councillors.  All councillors are nominated by the individual affiliated federations; the officials are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting.  All clubs have the opportunity to submit Notices of Motion to the AGM, these Notices of Motion are voted on by Club delegates present.

The objective of the Union is to work in the interest of all its members; to encourage the sport of long distance flying; to arbitrate and adjudicate in all cases of disputes brought to its notice and to maintain through its administration the discipline and interest of its members; to establish a uniform system of measurement for all flying routes, along with a uniform system of timing.
