The top 6 squads of the U-22 Women's Softball European Championship are known

Defined the top 6 squads of the U-22 Women's Softball European Championship: Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, and France.

In pool E, Italy (3-0) won the three games played in the second round, topping Czech Republic, 1-4, Germany, 0-7, and Ireland, 0-10.
Ireland (1-2) is the one team not to make it to the top 6, despite winning the same number of games as Czech Republic (1-2) and Germany (1-2). In fact, Czech Republic allowed 7 combined runs in the games against Ireland and Germany, which allowed respectively 14 and 13.

Therefore from pool E, Italy, Czechia, and Germany pass to group X, where they will face Netherlands, Spain, and France from pool F.

Netherlands (3-0) dominated pool F, winning against France, 5-6, Spain, 3-12, and Ukraine, 2-7. Ukraine fought all the games until the last out but did not find a W in the second round-robin
Spain topped France, 4-5, in a very close game on Thursday, June 30, to claim the second spot in the pool F.

The final round-robin will now take place to define the teams playing the bronze medal game and the championship game.
