Welcome to maccql.com

Macclesfield Quiz League is an annual General Knowledge competition that's been held throughout the winter months in and around the market town of Macclesfield, in the English county of Cheshire, since at least 1982. On this website you can find all the latest results and League tables, a historical archive of past results and tables, and all the questions that we've set to challenge each other in the past few years (with answers, obviously).

This website replaced the Macclesfield Quiz League blog in 2017. The blog had been operational since 2007.

Latest News

This week (Tuesday 9 April) we played League Week 17. Full results, and the questions, are available from the Latest Updates menu on the left hand side of this page. Other details will follow as soon as possible.

Last week (Tuesday 2 April) was the semi-finals of the knockout competitions. Full details are still available from the Latest Updates menu.

Next week (Tuesday 16 April) is the final week of the League season: Week 18. The questions are being set by the Waters Green Weavers. The Harrington Academicals will be vetting them (if they aren't already), but all B League teams will be playing and home teams (in the B League) must provide question masters.

PaulP has raised a couple of points re. marking and checking questions (and answers). We want to hear your opinion!


The Archive section of the website is now as complete as it's ever likely to be, in that all the historical material we have is there. If you can fill in any gaps, please get in touch!

Essentially, we have a complete record from 1999 onwards (thanks to the diligent record–keeping of Mark Watson). We have a good coverage of fixtures and results from the early 90s, but there are some gaps in the latter years of that decade. We have tables (League and Individual) as far back as the mid–80s, and Question Setters' Trophy details from 1992–3.

We have very little material concerning the first four or five years of the League's history, and sadly it now seems unlikely that any more will come to light from that era – unless you know different!

For details of what we have and what we don't have, please refer to the Archive Summary.
