The South West Combination Women's Football League, also known simply as the South West Combination, is at the fourth level of the English women's football pyramid, along with the three other Combination Leagues – South East, Midland and Northern.

The South West Combination feeds directly into the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division, and lies above the South West Women's Football League Premier Division and the Southern Region Women's Football League Premier Division in the pyramid.

History[edit]

The league operated with only 10 teams for the 2010–11 season instead of the regulation 12, as WFC Fulham and Winscombe L.F.C. both disbanded before the season began. Reading Town L.F.C., who were relegated from the South West Combination at the end of the 2009–10 season, were offered a reprieve but declined.

Havant & Waterlooville L.F.C. also disbanded in October 2012 due to a large number of key players transferring to other teams. They currently have no plans to reinstate the team.
