Report

From then on the tournament was held every two years, with each country entering the winners of the two previous National Championships. The much increased attendance proved difficult for Irish teams as Kiely’s Kegs finished 6th out of 12 in 2014, with a 3-8 record.[6][7]

The tournament was held in Austria in 2016, and TNT (6-7) and Oddsox (5-8) finished 10th and 11th respectively out of a field of 14.[8][9]

The most recent tournament was held in 2018 in Riccione, Italy. TNT put in the best performance by an Irish team since the move to a bi-annual tournament by qualifying for the Top Group and finishing 6th out of 16 with a 6 Wins 8 Losses record. Dodder Dynamoes were again Ireland’s other representatives and posted a very creditable 8-6 record while finishing 11th. [10][11]

About


The European Softball Federation organised the first Coed Slowpitch European Cup in 2007. From 2007-2012 it was held every year and from 2012-present it has been held every two years, with the two previous National Champions now entering each tournament as well as the holders of the European Super Cup.

The Irish representatives are the winners of the Softball Ireland National Club Championship – the annual tournament between the winners of Ireland’s Provincial Leagues  – now Leinster (East) and Ulster (North) and once including Munster (South).
