The first edition of the Men’s Slowpitch European Championship took place in Choceň, the Czech Republic, and culminated with a win of the undefeated Great Britain’s national selection. Seven teams took part in this newly established competition: Belgium, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and the Netherlands.
Great Britain, the European slowpitch dominion, proved again that their experience in this bat-and-glove discipline is inevitable. Starting with a two-hour game (win against the Netherlands 24-13) and finishing off with a final win (20-5 against Germany) team GB remained the only undefeated squad throughout the whole tournament. It took eleven games to confirm their slowpitch dominance.
1. Great Britain
