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.
As the temperature climbs compound archers show the way to cope, shooting in the shade (or adjusting the bow) while the recurvers toil in the midday sun.
CCB fielded 3 Recurve and 1 Compound team in the winter postal leagues. The final results:
The compound team won their division (18), Recurve A won division 24, Recurve B came second in division 44 and Recurve C won division 53. [read]
On Sunday 20th May CCB emerged victorious in the annual Town vs Gown recurve match, winning by a small margin, the compound team also won, largely because the University side didn’t field any compounds. Similarly in the Barebow competition, the University were clear winners and only competitors. [read]

Results are now uploaded and the provisional dates for next year are the 18th & 19th May.
