2018-19 Season: - Archived 1st November 2018

The Committee have released the fixtures for next season.

Make up of Divisions and Divisional Fixtures:

There will be 3 divisions as last season.

Divisions 1 and 2 will comprise 11 teams. Divisions 3 will have 12 teams - Total 34.

The divisional league fixtures will be played over 22 weeks. Divisions 1 and 2 teams will have 2 bye weeks each, Division 3 teams will have no bye weeks. Division 3 teams, therefore, will be unable to set divisional quizzes due to not having bye weeks.

The divisional fixtures will commence on 10th September 2018 and finish on 8th April 2019. There will be breaks for the Pairs Table Quiz and the early stages of the Cup Competitions.

Pairs Table Quiz:

It was decided at the 2018 AGM that the League would run an annual Pairs Table Quiz and the League's rules have been amended accordingly. Pairs may comprise members of the same LCQL team or of different teams. In the latter case, if the LCQL teams are in different divisions the pair will play for the prize in the higher division. Where an individual arrives with no partner, he/she may (if possible) form a pair with another player in the same position. Equally, if desired, a LCQL player may partner a person who does not play in the League.

There will be two medals/trophies for the highest scoring pair in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 respectively. Additionally, the Alan Peel Trophy will be awarded to the highest scoring of the 3 divisional winners.

This season the competition will be held on Monday, 17th December 2018. The venue has still to be arranged.

Cup Competitions:

To offset the reduction in divisional fixtures, the Pool Weeks will be played over 5 weeks instead of 3 weeks. Pool Week 1 will be played on Monday, 14th January 2019 through to Pool Week 5 on Monday, 11th February 2019.

Teams will be split on an 18/16 basis dependant on League positions after the completion of Week 11 fixtures. There will be 3 x 6-team pools in the Dennis Wigham and 1 x 6-team pool and 2 x 5-team pools in the Tony Clare.

The make-up of the Tony Clare will allow Division 3 teams to be involved in the setting of all 5 quizzes for the Pool Weeks. None of the teams in the Dennis Wigham will be able to set as there are no bye weeks.
