harry potter national championship quiz

Since 2019, we have held the Harry Potter National Championship quiz at Leroy’s Bar in Wellington to determine the top Harry Potter quiz team in the country! We will be running the National Championship quiz again in October 2021. To qualify, teams need to win the Harry Potter quiz in their city.

All the winners will be invited to the Championship quiz where the questions will be tougher, the pressure more intense and the stakes higher! 

In 2019, it was Wellington's "The Inquizitarial Squad who took it out over ". In 2020, the winners were "The Chudley Cannons", winners over and. Who will be crowned champions in 2021?

In 2020, we asked a question every day on our Facebook page. Every question was worth between 1-10 points, dependent on difficulty.

 

The individual with the highest tally of points at the end of the year was deemed the overall winner.

 

Over the year we had thousands upon thousands of incorrect answers and 366 correct answers.

 

The eventual winner was Hamilton's David Ritchie who really blitzed the other competitors with his knowledge and problem-solving skills. Here are the questions, answers, winners and number of Facebook comments for each:
