Keatings was out of action for almost a year with knee ligament damage
Britain's Daniel Keatings will miss the chance to defend his European pommel horse title after failing to sufficiently recover from injury.
The 21-year-old, who won world all-round silver in 2009, damaged knee ligaments in April 2010, only days after clinching gold in Birmingham.
He returned in an international match against France in Ipswich on Saturday.
But he has been overlooked by selectors for the European event which runs from 6-10 April in Berlin.
The team will be headed by Beth Tweddle, who won the bars and floor titles at the last two European Championships in Birmingham 2010 and Milan 2009.
This year's championships will be a tough challenge with all gymnasts now fine tuning their routines ahead of a huge year
Louis Smith and Daniel Purvis also took medals at last year's event, with Smith taking silver on the pommel horse behind Keatings and Purvis bronze on the floor.
Tweddle said: "This year's European Championships is all about trying out new skills. Some people might see that as a risk, but obviously 2011 is the year to try it with the Olympics ahead of us.
"I've always enjoyed competing at the European Championships and have had great success, particularly in the past two years.
"This year's championships will be a tough challenge with all gymnasts now fine tuning their routines ahead of a huge year, so it will be very interesting to see how everyone gets on in Berlin."
GB Team: Louis Smith, Dan Purvis, Kristian Thomas, Theo Seager, Sam Hunter, Sam Oldham, Beth Tweddle, Hannah Whelan, Jenni Pinches, Danusia Francis.
