Draughts, also known as checkers, is a game played between two players on a board consisting of 10x10 black and white squares, similar to the one used for chess.
Held on August 1-9 in Nevsehir, Turkey, the 2022 European Youth Championship included classic, rapid and blitz tournaments in each age group. More than 100 competitors from 12 countries took part in the competition.
