An online entry form is now available for teams wishing to play in 2019/20 WCBA Leagues. 

Entries for the county league teams are now open and the closing date is 15 July 19. There is one entry form for all leagues.  We welcome entries from all county players old and new.  League 3 is designed for the less experienced players forming new teams.  League 2 is the entry route for more experienced players entering for the first time.  Teams in all leagues can now have up to eight players with any four playing on one night.  If you are not sure of the complete team membership, please enter the captain’s name and as many team members as you can.  There is a column for you to show your preference for the league you would prefer to play in – this is not guaranteed but would help the committee if there is any flexibility after following the normal promotion/relegation rules.

Click here or on 'Leagues 2019/20' on the Menu on the left for the entry form.

Please note the deadline for entries is 15 July 19.

Katharine Receives Dimmie Fleming Award

Katharine has just returned from London where she received her Dimmie Fleming Award.

In her own words....

I had a very memorable day last Wednesday when Silverio and I travelled to London and I received the Dimmie Fleming award at the EBU AGM.  It was lovely to have an official recognition of my time on the WCBA committee when I helped, along with many others, to organise the hobby that has given me so much enjoyment over the years.  Thank you to everyone in Wiltshire who supported the nomination for my award – it was an honour to receive it.
