The Flèche d’Or archery club is thrilled to invite you to their yearly indoor tournament, the Prix de la Ville de Luxembourg, also valid for the FLTA (Fédération Luxembourgeoise de Tir à l’Arc) team circuit. The tournament is held on Sunday, February 4th 2024 at the Bonnevoie sports hall (42 rue Jean-François Gangler, Luxembourg city).
The tournament is a regular 2x18m round (in two series of 10 ends of 3 arrows), with two rounds in the day. Tournament participants should be in possession of a valid WA licence (in case of doubt, please do not hesitate to contact us). If required for your local archery federation, the scores can be certified by our judges for you to send them back to your local federation. Competitors can also decide to go with both rounds during the day, in which case only the first score will be retained for the ranking (unless there is a change in bow category).
