The Turkish Women's Handball Super League shares the season style with the men's league. As of the 201112 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.
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.
