We are so glad to welcome a new member in our team - Bulgaria! What has led the new member country to IFBT, with what emotions the athletes and organisers start their way in the Federation and what expectations they have, you will find further in the interview that Konstantin Stoyanov, the Chairman of the Black Sea Burgas Sports Club, kindly agreed to give us on this joyful occasion:
"I would love to expand our cooperation and bypass the positive international experience in this beautiful sport. I congratulate you on being a pioneer in beach tennis, you've achieved a lot in promotion and development of the game, and this also contributes to sports in general.
I'm also one of the pioneers of beach tennis in my country. A few years ago after I've tried to play beach tennis for the first time, I literally fell in love with this sport! The following year, we created the Black Sea Sports Burgas Club, of which I am the Chairman until now.
Although we are passing through some different moments right now, I will continue to do whatever I can to help the development of this sport, especially among children, teenagers, amateurs, veterans with special priority for children and adults with social and health problems.
I would like to get, as soon as possible, an International IFBT Instructor Certificate, to be even more efficient in my work, exchange experience and apply progressive international practices.
I'm planing on hosting at least two IFBT tournaments next year and found the Bulgarian Beach Tennis Association."
Once more we'd like to greet Bulgaria, thank it for its trust and wish it a good start, new sports achievements and to enjoy the game!
