Venue and dates:  

The 2017 edition of the women’s U18 European Championship will take place in Arnhem from April 1 to 9. It is the second time in history that the tournament will be held in the Netherlands. In 2009 the under age group tournament took place in Rotterdam when Belgium claimed a sensational victory and historic gold medal.

Current title holder: 

Two years ago it was Russia that claimed the title in a five-set thriller against Serbia. The most interesting fact is delivered by the list of all trophy winners: there is no national team which could defend the European Championship title since the first edition held in 1995.

Champions:  

Italy (1995, 2001), Poland (1999, 2013) and Russia (1997, 2015) are the most successful teams and won slightly more than half of the tournaments played so far (11), followed by Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Ukraine and Turkey with each having a Championship title. These surprising numbers are evidence that every team have a chance to win the title in this age group.

Competition format:  

The 12 participating teams were drawn into two pools of six and will be playing a single round-robin format before the top two qualify for the semi-finals.  

Pool I includes the teams from Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Russia and Turkey, while Pool II consists of Belarus, Greece, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.

The first and second-placed teams after the preliminary round will play crossed semis while those ranked third and fourth will be playing the classification matches 5-8.
