Competition formatEdit

The Turkish Women's Handball Super League shares the season style with the men's league. As of the 2011–12 season, it consists of 9 teams -one less than in previous seasons-, each playing 16 regular season games. The four teams with most points at the end of the regular season advance to the play-offs. They are divided into two groups of two, based on their placement. Group A is formed by 1 and 4 while Group B has 2 and 3. Three matches are played in each group, in home and away form. The two group winners advance to the championship finals, while the runners-up play for the bronze medal. Both the finals and the bronze matches are played as a "best of two" series.[1]

The lowest placed two teams of the regular season is directly relegated to the first division, and replaced by the winners of this. The group winners and the runners-up will qualify for the league in the next season.[1]
