The weekend is open to female chess players of all levels and consists of a wide range of events including tournaments, coaching sessions and simultaneous exhibitions with some of Europe’s strongest players. Different skill levels in tournaments and coaching sessions will thereby allow everyone to find the event that suits their level of chess.
Additionally you can learn from some of Europe’s most successful female women
what it is like to be a top class arbiter, how and when to eat to perform best at
chess or what top tips titled players have about time management to combine
chess, career and family.
