I'm very surprised by these results actually.
I'm male and in the prime of my life (36 years), Belgian and a little bit possessed by quizzing. But here in Belgium, we have a very active quizzing circuit during the weekends. I'm founder of a team, and every friday and saturday we play quizzes with our team against other teams in Belgium.
To give you an exemple: we organize a quiz ourselves, we did it last friday and we had in total 110 teams of 6 players competing against eachother!
Every weekend there are more or less 20 venues in Belgium where a quiz is being organised, and there is an official ranking of the teams (similar to the ATP ranking)
The thing that surprises me about this poll is that in Belgium, you only have 10% of active playing females in this competition. But then again, maybe it's fine like this, because the wife doesn't mind me sitting in a room with mostly guy's from 40 or older ;-)
Nostalgy ain't what it used to be
