WQ Archive Comments Question papers

The Withington Quiz League has been running for over 40 years now - and since 2000 all that's happened has been recorded on this website.  The result is a mountain of archive material.

This page provides a top down way into that material.

Also available (at the top of the Home page) is a search facility which will burrow down and find pages that contain key words or phrases that you might be looking for.

Week by week archive

A multitude of pages organised according to each of the WithQuiz seasons since season 1999-2000.  This treasure trove of quiz Question papers and QuizBiz articles are accessed via a week-by week summary of each season.  The link on the left takes you to the archive page for the current season and from there you can link to other seasons.

Summary pages also link to the season's Fixture list, League table, Inter-team results grid and a gallery of Photos from that season's end of season presentation evening.



Over the years many teams have come and gone - and a few have come and stayed.  This page documents something about each team of which we have any record or memory.  Team members remembered are listed along with a record of trophy-winning achievements and a team photo where we have been able to lay our hands on one.



A table showing (as far as we can recall since the early 1990s) winners and, in some cases, runners up in all the major trophies for which WithQuiz league teams have competed over the years.

Plus composite league tables showing teams' relative success in the WithQuiz league between 1999 and 2016 and the WIST competitions between 2007 and 2017.

Fr Megson archive

Fr Megson (a.k.a. Gerry Collins) has been writing articles for the website since the early years of this millennium.  Sometimes about quizzing but usually about the quirks of life in general.  Full of offbeat humour with an Irish tinge.  All of his QuizBiz pieces have been gathered together and indexed.  This link will take you to the index.

WithQuiz at 40 posters

The 2017-2018 WithQuiz season was the 40th.  To celebrate we put together the WithQuiz Story which was displayed as a series of posters at the celebratory Social event in March 2018.  This is a link to those posters.

The Perfect Quiz

Some suggested rules as to the composition of the perfect quiz paper along with comments from a number of WithQuiz worthies - published in 2004.
