All players are invited to take part in a Pairs Competition to help celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the MQL. This will take place on Wednesday 11 September 2019 at Hoylake Social Club, 11 Trinity Road, Hoylake, Wirral CH47 2BR starting at 8pm.

Players who wish to take part will be ranked and then pairs will be created on the night by drawing a player from the top half of the rankings with one from the other half. The first stage of the competition is usually a 40 or 50 question quiz in which each pair write their answers to spoken questions.

The top 6 pairs progress to a “15 to 1” style Semi-Final in which each pair starts with 3 “lives” and questions are asked to each pair in turn. When three pairs have been eliminated then the remainder go through to the Final played on the same lines.

If time permits, we also hope to have a Plate Competition so that as many as possible remain involved as the evening progresses.

There is no entry fee and light refreshments will be served. If you would like to take part then please register with Brian Thompson ( by midday on Wednesday 4 September (1 week before the competition).
