Simultaneously running with the higher-tier Women's Softball European Cup Winners Cup A and the Women's Softball European Premier Cup, this event promises a week of intense competition in Moergestel, Netherlands.

Seven teams are primed to compete in the Women's Softball European Cup Winners Cup B 2023 to have their National Federation qualify for next year's Women's Softball European Cup Winners Cup A.
