OQL IndividualChampionships

Online Quiz League are running their inaugural individual championships on Saturday 25th March.  Around 300 players have already signed up to play at venues up and down the country.  The day involves a written individual quiz featuring 200 questions across a whole manner of subjects and then two fun team quizzes in the afternoon.

This is looking like being the biggest event of its kind ever in the UK and one of the venues is the Cross Keys, a pub in Liverpool city centre.  There are currently around 15 spaces left available there and it would be great to see those spaces filled with MQL players.

Success for Wirral QL!

With two games remaining in the final round of matches, played 22 February, Wirral sat third in the table with 16 points behind Ormskirk (20) and Liverpool 2A (17). We firstly defeated Liverpool 2A with Ormskirk defeating Warrington.

We then had a resounding victory against Warrington and Liverpool 2A defeated Ormskirk, which meant Wirral and Ormskirk were tied on 24 points. To decide the winners of the Shield, points difference was taken into account and, thanks to our final big win, Wirral were declared the winners!
