Quiz Liverpool

Home of the Liverpool Quiz League

Welcome to the website of the Liverpool Quiz League, part of the Merseyside Quiz Leagues, the world's longest running independent quiz league organisation.

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

In the 2016/17 season there were over 100 teams competing. Teams take part 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!

AGM 2017 - Change of Date 

The date set in 2016 for the 2017 AGM was Sunday 30 April.  This is of course the Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend, so it has been decided to bring this forward by one week to Sunday 23 April.  Still at Old Swan Conservative Club, 73 Derby Lane, Liverpool L13 6QE at 8pm

Given this late change of date, the 28 day deadline for any written proposals to be received will still stand at the original date of 2 April.

Riley Cup Competition 2017 

Liverpool Quiz League is organising the 2017 Riley Cup Competition.

There are 39 teams competing for the Ted Riley Cup this year, all correspondence will be by email (except for the questions!)

The draw has been made for the first three rounds, they will be played on 10th and 24th April 2017 and 8th May, all games in these rounds will commence at 9pm.  Fixtures are in the calendar and on the Riley Cup page.

The quarter finals, semi-finals and final will commence at 8.00pm on 15th May 2017, at Aigburth People’s Hall, L17 0DJ. The draw taking place on the night.

Scoring and timing
As in previous years we will adopt the following rule for scoring and timing;
Each individual player shall be allowed to attempt to answer their own question for two points.
If they answer incorrectly, it can be attempted for one point by another member of their own team.
If this attempt is wrong, it then passes over to the opposition for one point.
Timing; 10 seconds for your own question, 5 seconds for the other team members to answer and five seconds for the opposition to answer.

Results
The winning team should send them to me, immediately after the game (so that I have them by 10pm on the night of the game), by text to 07758 464 110 (leaving the names and scores for each team) or email pauldavitt@virginmedia.com. As there is a short time between games I would appreciate that you comply with this request, as there is very little time to send out the next set of questions.

Protests
In the event of a protest, team captains should advise me on the Monday night, then confer on the Tuesday and advise me by 8pm of the result of their consultation, by phone or email. If the team captains fail to agree; Paul Davitt, Jim Eccleson, Keith Clare and Angela Doyle will adjudicate by noon on the Wednesday.

Spare Questions;
If a Question Set fails to arrive, you may obtain a spare set from one of the following;

Angela Doyle 0151 722 1054 Jim Eccleson 0151 653 8649 Paul Davitt 0151 427 7617

You may follow the progress of the competition on the Liverpool Quiz League Website www.quizliverpool.org.uk. 

All teams will have the results emailed to them each week.

Should you have any queries or questions regarding the competition please do not hesitate to contact me.

Good luck to you all and I hope you enjoy the competition.

Paul Davitt
General Secretary Liverpool Quiz League
