The University of California, Berkeley, also known as Cal, is a large public university in Berkeley, California. After a period of dominance in the mid-2000s led by then-graduate student Jeff Hoppes and then-undergraduate Seth Teitler, the team contracted for several years until its more recent renaissance in the early 2010s. As of the 2015-16 year, the Berkeley team is one of the largest (if not the largest) quizbowl team(s) of all time, and is semi-frequently able to field a J-team at events in its area [1].

Tournaments

Berkeley frequently hosts NAQT tournaments, and has run the Western Invitational Tournament in the fall in previous years and in the spring of 2013. They also host the Cal Classic for high school teams. Since 2012-2013, Berkeley has hosted a yearly series of four HS tournaments called the California Cup.
