The WCCA Exec Meeting to determine league entries took place at 7.30pm on 12th September 2018 at Langley Burrell, Chippenham. Brown Jack will now be called Check Inmates and have a new venue and club night. The leagues will be the same as last year except the Intermediate maximum grade will be 150 for this season and Swindon will only enter two , not three teams, in this league. Thus the amount of teams in the various leagues would be three in the Major, five in the Intermediate, three in the Minor. All teams would play the other teams both home and away, except the Minor, where they would play each other home and away twice. THe fees would be the same as last year. Nominees for the President's Shield were suggested. Jim Sherwin won the 5 minute tournament, but there will be no rapidplay this year. There are only four early entrants to the Wiltshire Championship

The WCCA Exec Meeting to determine league entries took place at 7.30pm on 13th September 2017 at Langley Burrell, Chippenham in which Trowbridge explained their players graded around 155 were unwilling to compete against players around 180 to 200, so would not enter a team in the Major League for 2017/18. Nominees for the President's Shield were suggested. The amount of teams in the various leagues would be three in the Major, six in the Intermediate, three in the Minor. All teams would play the other teams both home and away, except the Minor, where they would play each other home and away twice. Due to a shortage of players before Christmas in the Minor League, the fixtures would cater for Trowbridge only playing a couple of games before the end of 2017.
