The IQL is a bunch of like minded people who get together every week to spread the joy of quizzing to one and all. “Two questions a day keeps our challengers at bay” is the Motto that the IQL has been displaying on its sleeves since Day One. This means that we would be making at least 2 questions each day in our quest to be the best!!

Who are we?

The Indian Quizzing League, or IQL, is a quizzing league based in Chennai, India. A group of four quizzing enthusiasts – Karthik Narayan, Ananthakrishnan Ganapathy, Anantha Shankar and Vijay Govindarajan from Chennai (members of the Quiz Foundation of India) took the first step in creating a new quizzing group in late 2007. The idea was to form a quiz group to change the face of quizzing beyond the normal winners. The idea became reality when the group met for its first public quiz meet on October 12, 2007.

IQL meets every Saturday at 17.00 P.M. for a quiz conducted by one or two of its members. As of now, the venue is under consideration and would be finalized depending on the convenience and accessibility.

Event management by IQL members

We organise and conduct professional and fun based quizzes for a number of schools, colleges and companies based in and around the city. If you want a professional quiz/quizzing related events to be conducted by us, feel free to contact us.

Successful Quizzes Conducted By IQL

We conducted a quiz called Chhote Ustaad 08 for children at the Checkers Hotel in Chennai for a social organization.

We also conducted quizzes for famous Chennai based schools such as Vidya Mandir (Mylapore) and DAV(Mogappair).

We organized a online quiz for an entrepreneur’s conference (Proto 08) – See LINK for more.

We have conducted the first-ever India Quiz called “India Unplugged Open Quiz” on January 26, 2009 in Chennai, sponsored by Kellogs and MarchAhead. We had teams coming all the way from Tiruchi, Mysore, Bangalore and Hyderabad to participate in the quiz. Plans are on to make this a Annual Event. Read more about the event here and here.

How does one become a member?

There is no membership fee required to attend the meetings. Online membership is available here

IQL goes by the concept of knowledge sharing, whereby in each meeting, aspects other than quizzing are presented and shared with each other.
