Who doesn’t love a good pub quiz? The chance to pit your general knowledge against others in a friendly battle of who-knows-the-most-random-information while enjoying a drink with some mates – what a great way to spend an evening.

Of course, one of the joys of doing a pub quiz is the pub quiz team name, both in terms of inventing a name for your own team and hearing other people’s creations – all of which of course have to read out at regular intervals by the poor quizmaster!

For a bit of fun,we're asking what’s the greatest pub quiz team name?

What’s been your proudest moment in team name creating? What’s the most amusing or pun-tastic team name you’ve ever heard?

I have presented pub quizzes in the past and when a team think they are being smart by coming up with a tongue twister or dodgy name to trip the host yp, I just say it once and then say " and for the reat of the evening We will call them Table 4" or something like that so that puts their gas at a peep.
