City Of Cambridge Bowmen

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.
