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 site carries all MQL questions since November 2016. Questions from several years before that can be found on Nick's Quiz site, which also follows the fortunes of Nick's team – the Waters Green Nags (and various previous incarnations) – on a weekly basis, and is always an entertaining read.

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

Latest News

The single game in Round 1 of the Cup was not played last week as it clashed with the England vs. Wales World Cup match. It will now be played on Tuesday 20 December.

Full details of the third round of League games of the 2022–3 season (played on Tuesday 22 November) are now available from the Latest Updates menu on the left hand side of this page.

On Tuesday 6 December we play League Week 4.

Dave P has got the ball rolling again for this week; now we want to hear what you think!

New contributors are of course more than welcome. Given that we now have to authorise you, it would help if you could provide a user name and/or email address (preferably both) that we will recognise, so that we can distinguish the real users from the spammers. Thank you in advance for your co–operation!

Archive

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.
