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.

Following the first event held recently at Rochdale Town Hall, asecond quiz event is taking place in Rainhill on 1st November 2014. n The event will consist of three main quizes:

Quiz event in Rochdale - 9th August 2014 

A Quiz Event will be held at Rochdale Town Hall on Saturday 9th August starting at 11:30.

There will be a short individual written quiz in the morning, and in the afternoon there will be a variety of team quizzes and buzzer quizzes.

Because we have made a very good deal with the Town Hall, there will only be a nominal fee of £5, with any surplus going to charity. The Town Hall canteen should be open for hot and cold drinks and hot and cold food.

If you have any questions or suggestions for the afternoon's quizzing, please do not hesitate to get in touch. However, there are some details on Facebook here:   Quiz in the North
