The Quiz Organisation of Wales is run entirely by volunteers. We hold an AGM at the British Quizzing Championships each September and elect a committee to undertake our formal activities.

Captain – Gareth Aubrey

A Welsh international since 2013, Gareth is probably best known as a member of the victorious University of Manchester team in the 2006 series of University Challenge.

Gareth has final responsibility for the selection of Wales representative teams at international competitions. He co-ordinates our participation in these events and takes the lead in organising international events for which the QOW is responsible.

Based in Beddau, Gareth represents quizzers from South Wales on the committee.


Vice-Captain – Andrew Teale

A supporter of international quizzing from its earliest days, Andrew made a well-deserved full Wales debut in 2018. Known for his prowess with questions on politics and current affairs, his broadcast appearances include University Challenge and Mastermind.

A stalwart of the Bolton Premier Quiz League, Andrew represents our many expatriate quizzers on the committee.


Secretary – Huw Pritchard

Huw has wowed TV audiences time and again, most notably when winning the Fifteen-to-One Grand Final in 2016.

Active in the community in the Conwy area, Huw represents our members in North Wales on the committee.


The wider membership of the Organisation provide much invaluable assistance to the Committee and we are always happy to support the efforts of our members to develop competitive quizzing across the country.
