From July 29 - August 3, the 10th U-16 Softball Women's European Championship will be held in Zagreb, Croatia.
This year, a record has been broken as there were never so many teams participating in this tournament. A great amount of 14 countries will battle to take home this year's title of European champion. We may welcome Croatia, Hungary and Turkey for the very first time at this tournament. As said before, the arrival of three new teams is very good to see because it means that softball is developing more and more through Europe.
In the past three editions, the Czech Republic managed to get the silver medal. The Netherlands (2017), Italy (2015) and Russia (2013) were too strong for them those times. Will one of these three countries seize the title again? Will it be the Czech Republic that finally bring home the title again since their last one in 2005? Or is there going to be an underdog that will bring home the gold?
