Nettlebed Quiz Team is looking for new members

Nettlebed and the South Oxfordshire Village quiz League Throughout the autumn and winter months up to about May, various villages in South Oxfordshire compete in friendly quizzes. Currently Nettlebed is very short of players for various reasons but mostly due to Covid shielding. Matches are either home or away. Games this season have been played with fewer per side, 5 people instead of 6 and fewer rounds of questions, but next autumn this will revert to the original format. Each person has their own question for 2 points or it is passed to a team member for 1 point. A wrong answer is passed to the opposing team for 1 point. Matches are arranged by the organiser as and when village halls, opposing teams and the question master are available but usually a week day evening excluding Fridays. There is a tea break in the middle for socialising. This is a fun thing to do with questions from all fields of knowledge: sport, television, music,...
