How the ESF ranking system works:

There are three rankings: for women’s fastpitch, men’s fastpitch and slowpitch.   
Rankings are based on points (multiplied by 100) given according to final standings at European Championships in all categories, with the following weighting: 

·       Senior European Championship – 100%  
·       Junior European Championship – 50%  
·       All others (U22 and U16) – 25%   

The ranking system only takes into account the two most recent championships in each category, with the following weighting:  
·       Most recent ECh – 100%  
·       Previous ECh – 50%  

A total of all the points awarded determines the placement of each country in each ranking.
