Thursday, 3 December (1800hrs - 1930hrs) Main Lawn

Say WHAAATT can you get for $100?! 

Pay to play on site with an all-inclusive ticket or play for free from home and still have a chance for prizes!

Join us for some fantastically fun Christmas cheer at the ‘Atypical' Christmas Sports Quiz Night on Thursday 3 December.  Incredibly, it's ONLY $100 per person and you get this:

  • Free-flow Peroni, house wine and soft drinks (1800hrs to 2000hrs on the Main Lawn) (though a little Elf has told us that HSBC just might be ringing the Bell in the Main Bar at 1730hrs and you know what that means!)
  • Roast Turkey and Roast Ham Carving Stations (yes with the obligatory cranberry sauce) as well as vegetarian samosas and mini mince pies from 1800hrs to 2000hrs. 
  • Atypical Sports Quiz WITH PRIZES from 1830hrs to 1930hrs
  • Christmas goodie bag from our sponsor HSBC for all participants
  • Great prizes to be won including Beer for a year from Peroni and Skin Care Products from Pharmabelle
  • Lucky Draw to win a table at the Club’s Weekend Champagne and Seafood Brunch.

BONUS if you wear Christmas theme fancy dress but if wearing antlers on the MTR on a Thursday evening is tricky, that’s ok.

The event is hosted by renowned BBC sports broadcaster Andrew Cotter along with HSBC Sporting Ambassadors, British Olympic sailor Hannah Mills and rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll, who will be joining us virtually for an entertaining evening of trivia.  We’ll connect you to the hosts by big screen Zoom but you’ll need to play using the Kahoot app on your phone!  

Our thanks to Club sponsor, HSBC Expat, for sponsoring this event.


The quiz event can be played as individuals or as teams, either on the Main Lawn, Kellett Island or from the comfort of your own home via Zoom.   Participants can form their teams of four (subject to the Government policy in place at the time of the event). Only one device per team to enter the quiz.  Prizes will be allocated to individuals or teams who win and to be split between team players in the eventuality they win. 

Spaces are limited to play on site and first come first served! Unlimited numbers can play from home!

Hosted over Zoom, the live quiz will be run through Kahoot!, a fun and interactive online platform that generates real-time leader boards. Please download the Kahoot app or go to the website on your devices, be familiarised with the app in advance of the quiz and get ready to play on 3 December!

The quiz and prizes are subject to these T&Cs. Hannah Mills’ Q&A will be hosted over Zoom and arranged at a separate, convenient time for both parties. Prizes are non-exchangeable, non-transferable, and not redeemable for cash or other prizes. HSBC Expat, Peroni and Pharmabelle retain the right to substitute their sponsored prizes with prizes of similar value in the event any original prize offered is not available. Entrants can be teams. If a team wins a prize they will need to share the prize. There will not be individual prizes for each of the entrants in a team. The ‘winners’ will be entrants with the top three point scores at the end of the quiz. In the event of a draw for a place, a tie-breaker question will decide the final three winners. We will attempt to contact the winners until 29/11/20 and prizes that require collection must be collected from The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, Kellett Island, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong by 29/12/20 to avoid being forfeited. Winners will need to provide valid photo ID in order to collect their prizes. To be a valid entrant for these prizes you must be aged 18 years or over and have had no involvement in setting up or running the quiz. If you don’t meet or stop meeting any of these criteria after entering then you may be disqualified and the prize will be forfeited. Participants may be disqualified (and any prizes won forfeited) where there are reasonable grounds for believing that they have breached these terms or otherwise gained a fraudulent advantage. The quiz night will not take place, or the prizes awarded and distributed, if doing so is prohibited by law or otherwise is in breach of local or national applicable legislation or other provisions or where there is a conflict of interest.
