CCB is a long established club (1951) that welcomes archers from Cambridge, the surrounding areas and beyond. CCB welcomes compound, longbow and recurve archers (and prospective archers) of all standards. We shoot outdoors all year, and during the winter shoot twice weekly indoors. Formal beginners courses are run 4 times a year, but help is always available for all club members.

On the 15th/16th weekend of June, a crew of CCB archers attended the 2019 WA Weekend at Girton College, hosted by Peacock Archery. This was the first year the shoot was hosted here, and it was a beautiful setting – it’s not often you can look past the targets at the house for the official Artist in Residence (here’s hoping they were looking out of their window and taking some inspiration during the shoot!).
