What should be in your Quiz invitation?

A good Pub Quiz invitation not only looks nice, but also clearly communicates key information to your target audience so participants know what to expect. So make sure your invitation at least states:


    • The type of quiz: if the quiz has a theme, for example, Music, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Disney or Harry Potter.
    • When your Pub Quiz takes place: include the date and start time.
    • Cost of participation: if you can participate for free, please mention this.
    • Team size: what is the minimum and maximum number of people a team should consist of? In many pub quizzes, this is 2-5 players per team.
    • How to register: for example, include a phone number, website, email address or that reservations are not necessary and you can register on the spot.

Additional info you can include in your invitation

Once you have the basic information, consider putting this information on your invitation as well.


    • Location: if not obvious, include the location. Is the quiz in a cafe, restaurant, at your home or somewhere else?
    • Prizes: are there prizes to be won? If so, mention them; it may be an additional motivation to participate.
    • How spots there are: this may encourage people to sign up (quickly).
    • End time: it may be helpful to give an indication of when the quiz will end.
    • Refreshments: will there be snacks and drinks that you can mention? Or a special dinner deal?
    • Other information: what makes your Pub Quiz unique? Do you have any special quiz rounds? A funny quizmaster? Put it on your invitation!
