How much do you know about our 125 year old league? Now is the chance to put your knowledge to the test with a 40 question, five round quiz. To alleviate the quarantine blues, the quiz will be streamed live via our YouTube or Twitter live streams. A direct link will be created in the period running up to the quiz.
All you need to join in at home is to tune into our YouTube channel or the Twitter livestream at around 6:45pm on Saturday 2nd May. Arm yourself with a pad and pen, or if you have access to a printer you can print off our official quiz sheets ahead of the event. It costs nothing to enter, and it is all just for fun after all so nothing has been put up as a prize. The quiz will begin at 7pm and is expected to last for around 90 minutes.
If you can’t make the quiz at the set time, an interactive online quiz form will be available after the end of it. As for the questions, well-known Honley and Joe Lumb team scorer Tim Hirst has helped to compile the quiz with a range of questions that cover the past 30 years and beyond. Our media officer Jamie Harrison will present the quiz on the night. Big thanks to Tim and his broad range of knowledge from his time being involved.
The quiz will be able to be accessed digitally to play if you miss the live stream. Check back soon for the link.
