The British Quiz Association aims to promote quiz as a competitive sport and to encourage lifelong learning. We run the national quiz circuit, with events taking place every month. These quizzes are fun and are open to everyone, so pop along and have a go!
The quizzes that we run award rankings points to players. These all go towards the Quizzing Order of Merit, recognising the achievements of the players. Quiz players who are included in the order of merit all have badges on the site to indicate their status. The highest order is Grand Master. The Grand Masters all have purple badges. You will probably recognise many people in the Order of Merit as a lot of the quizzers take part in television shows. People like Kevin Ashman, Pat Gibson, Barry Simmons, Anne Hegerty, Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace and Paul Sinha - many of whom regularly attend our events.
In addition to this, we can design quiz games in any format, and we have a team of highly experienced setters and verifiers, who work on all sorts of question setting projects. You can find out more about getting your questions set by the experts here.
The Quizzing.co.uk website is run by a team of five people:
