Welcome to maccql.com

Macclesfield Quiz League is an annual General Knowledge competition 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

The 2022–3 Cup Final and Presentations evening was held at the Pack Horse Bowling Club, on Tuesday the 16th of May. The Cup Final was won by the Queens, with the Poachers finishing as runners–up.

The News & Views and a selection of photos are now available from the Latest Updates menu on the left hand side of this page, as well as the questions.

The final information packs are also now available from the Latest Upates menu.

Congratulations to the Poachers and the Dolphin Hammers on winning their respective League titles, and to Alan Hodgson and Paul Prior on topping the Individual tables.

The full individual tables for the 2022–3 season, and the classified match results (i.e. classified by team), are now available. The archived individual records (showing every player's individual scores over the years), the team lists (showing everyone that's played for each team in the history of the League), and the various honours boards, have all been updated with the information for the 2022-3 season.

Don't forget that the Forum will be there all over the summer.


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.
