About

The Quiz Organisation Of Wales exists to promote participation in competitive quizzing for everyone who lives in Wales or hails from Wales.

Television and radio quizzes, be they old favourites like Mastermind and Brain of Britain or modern classics like Fifteen-to-One, regularly show the remarkable talents of the UK’s best quizzing brains. But those broadcast glimpses really only scratch the surface of top-level quizzing in Wales and across the British Isles. Barely a weekend goes by without quizzers coming together somewhere in the UK to challenge themselves against the hardest questions and the best opponents around.

Many of the competitors at these events have proven themselves in those broadcast quizzes, but an equal number have found success on our screens after honing their skills in tournaments up and down the country. And there are plenty of quizzers who just enjoy the testing their brains and sharing the camaraderie of the quizzing community.

Since 2005, the Quiz Organisation Of Wales has been responsible for the Wales teams competing at the Quiz Olympiad and European Quizzing Championships, the most prestigious international team events in the world of quiz. We also share hosting duties for the Celtic Nations Quizzing Championships with our colleagues in Scotland and Ireland, bringing high-quality international quizzing to Wales every three years.

Throughout the year we work to help Welsh quizzers take part in top-flight competitive quizzing, whether through the events we organise under the auspices of the British Quizzing Association or through the many events held by our members and friends up and down the UK.

We realise it can be daunting to take that first step beyond your local pub quiz or quiz league, which is why we have put together this site to tell you all about what we do and the events we attend and organise.
