Quiz Team

  1. The Ash U3A Quiz Group operates in a different way to most groups in that we do not meet regularly; instead the members form a pool of quizzers who represent the U3A at local events.

Throughout the year, I look out for quiz nights then contact members in rotation when one is due and make up a team from those who are available. This means the people making up the team, and thus their specialist knowledge, is different every time.

At the moment we attend several quizzes a year in local venues which raise money for local organisations and we take part in the annual U3A Challenge cup in Hartley Wintney. All quizzes charge an entry fee which is payable by the individual not the U3A and winnings (often just Smarties!) are kept by the individual.

So if you are a keen quizzer and would like to be added to a pool of people who can be called upon to represent us, please get in touch with me

Latest news from the quiz team.

 We have won some of the quizzes and lost some others but we have had a lot of laughs and made some new friends along the way. There is always room for a few more members so think about joining us.


The Charity Fun Quizzes are put on each month by David Brown at the Victoria Halls and continue with Friday the 5th April in aid of Wateraid. That one will be followed by Friday 3rd May  in aid of Silent Bleed; Friday June 7th  in aid of Parity and Friday July 5th in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust.

The quizzes start at 7.30p.m. and cost £5.00 per person, bring your own drinks and nibbles. Needless to say there is always a raffle

Names firstly to me at Penelope.thomsett@ntlworld.com
