World Quizzing Championships 2022 (Irish venue)

Saturday June 4th @ 10:30am 5:00pm

I​t’s time to take on the world! Or more precisely over 3,000 quizzers around the world taking part in the World Quizzing Championships – all competing for the title of ‘best quizzer in the world’.

It’s an individual written quiz, so you don’t need to bring a team. But there will be a fun team quiz afterwards to wind down, with teams made up on the day and seeded based on the WQC scores.

Cost is €10 per person (no teams required) for the full day’s quizzing.

If you plan on coming, please email iqo@quizireland.ie, just so we have a rough idea of numbers and can have enough papers printed.
