Trakya Open

To all World Archery, World Archery Europe Member Associations and Clubs

Dear President,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Bulgarian Archery Federation (BAF) I invite you to take part in the TRAKYA OPEN, which will be held on 29th April to 01st May 2022 at Plovdiv, BULGARIA. TRAKYA OPEN precedes European Grand Prix 2022 and will be held on the same field where EGP will happen, that gives you great opportunity to warm up for EGP 2022.

Trakya Cup will be open for Recurve, Compound and Barebow,

for Cadets (Under 18), Juniors (Under 21), Men/Women and Masters (50+).

Under Barebow we will allow all: longbow, traditional, instinctive.

I would be very happy to see you and your team in Plovdiv – the European capital of culture for 2019. You will receive a warm and friendly welcome from this mysterious city, with its charm and ancient history.

Plovdiv is located 140 km from Sofia – Bulgarian capital. Plovdiv is hosting the European Grand Prix right after TRAKYA OPEN.

The Bulgarian Archery Federation is pleased to inform you that upon your arrival and until your departure we will follow all the safety protocols for prevention of COVID-19 as established by the Bulgarian government. The measures applied to the certain list of countries and further information can be found at (i.e., mandatory COVID-19 test prior the entrance to Bulgaria, etc.).  

I’m looking forward to welcoming you at Plovdiv, BULGARIA

Yours sincerely,

Atanas Temelkov                                

President Bulgarian Archery Federation
