Welcome to the homepage of UK Quizbowl: the organisation for all things to do with student buzzer quizzing in the UK.
Quizbowl is, essentially, a game similar to the TV show University Challenge, but with some differences in focus — if you are new, why not check out our introduction to quizbowl? You can also find the details of upcoming quizbowl tournaments on the events page, with some common questions answered in the FAQ section. A short list of quizbowl terms used on this website is provided in the glossary.
