Merseyside Quiz Leagues

The World's Largest Independent Quiz Leagues

The Merseyside Quiz Leagues, founded in 1959, are the largest independent quiz leagues in the world.

In the 2011/12 season there were approximately 150 teams competing. Teams compete in their own local leagues, so that travelling distances are kept to a minimum. There are, however, opportunities to enter Merseyside-wide competitions at either team or league representative levels - our equivalents of UEFA club competitions and International matches.

Sad News 

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the deaths of two stalwarts of the MQL, both members of the Warrington Quiz League.

Elaine Bates, who was the incumbent MQL President and former deputy chair of the organisation, passed away on January 4th.  Her funeral will take place at Walton Lea Crematorium, Warrington on Monday 20 January 2014 at 12:20 pm. Afterwards, there will be a reception at Culcheth Village Club (formerly Culcheth British Legion), postcode WA3 4LY, where Elaine was an active team player for many years.

Charlie Willliams, former President and Assistant General Secretary, passed away on Thursday 9th January.  His funeral will take place at 13.00 on Monday 20th January at Newchurch Parish Church, Culcheth, Warrington and afterwards at Leigh Golf Club.

Our thoughts and best wishes go out to their families and friends.
