Welcome to the official web page of the European Women’s Go Championship 2015 & Turkish Summer Go Camp.

For results, click here.

We would like to announce that the 2015 European Women’s Go Championship (EWGC) will take place on 11-12 July in Çıralı, Antalya.

The event will be combined with the Turkish Summer Go Camp which will take place between 3-12 July. Participants will have the chance to participate in the Turkish Summer Go Camp and practice a week before the tournament if they would like to. Please see details and prices below.

Venue


Çıralı is a one hour drive toward the west of Antalya and a small vacation town. It is a doubly protected area, once for being an archeological site of the ruins the city of Olympos and Temple of Fire at Chimerea and second as a natural reserve for being the nesting grounds of Caretta Caretta, giant sea turtles.

Thanks to these two properties there are no huge and ugly hotels in this area. Instead there are “pansiyons” with comfortable, air conditioned and en suite bungalows blended in with orange orchards.

EWGC will be held in Kıyı Pansiyon in Çıralı. Çıralı is 70 kms from Antalya. We will provide transportation for official representatives from Antalya airport on Friday evening. For details about this transport please contact us with your flight details. If you are trying to get to Çıralı on your own please note that Çıralı beach is 7 kms off the main Antalya-Kaş road and public transport will drop you at the junction 7 kms away from the venue. We can also pick you up from that junction if you let us know your arrival time.

 

Turkish Summer Go Camp 2015


This year we are organizing the 7th Turkish Summer Go Camp and the Turkish Summer Go Camps have a reputation for studying hard and partying hard. Besides having many strong players to practice with we have workshops to help you improve your level. The camp will take place close to the seaside so in between hard study you will have the chance to swim in the beautiful Mediterranean. One afternoon we have a boat trip to nearby bays. And at nights we have nice parties by campfire, guitar playing, going to dancing clubs one or two nights and many fun people with all kinds of interesting games to play.
