A total of 10 games will be played throughout the weekend, in a single round robin format.

The teams will tune up together for the upcoming European Women’s Softball Championship. Barcelona, Sant Boi, Viladecans and Gavà (all of them located in the Baix Llobregat) will host the continental championship, which will also serve as the WBSC Women’s Softball World Cup European qualifier.
