We are a friendly and enthusiastic club catering for all levels, from the complete beginner up to the highly experienced athlete. Anyone is welcome, whether they wish to shoot purely for fun or desire to compete in any of the many competitions we attend. Cambridge University Bowmen have an excellent record over the years in both the experienced and novice levels of competition on the university stage as well as at county, regional and national level.

We shoot in the regional BUTTS league, as well as at the national indoor and outdoor BUCS competitions and a number of other university events. We also shoot in an annual Varsity match against Oxford University Company of Archers. In addition to University shooting, many members take part in external competitions held throughout the county and sometimes even farther afield.

On Saturday the 1st of February, Cambridge archers travelled the gruelling distance to the Elizabeth Way Rifle Range to spend a lovely day in the in its brutally cold Arctic environment (an archery staple).
Despite this misgiving, we managed to take home a total of six medals! Liam...
On Sunday 24 th November, a group of fifteen archers made the road trip to Leicester for the DMU BUTTS leg, sustained on the journey by a McDonalds drive-through venture.
It was a successful day of shooting and well worth the travel, with CUB bringing home a crop of medals....
This is a large event comprised of every team in the BUTTS League (including division 2), and is one of the highlights of the indoor season. The shoot will consist of a Portsmouth round followed by head-to-heads, with separate novice and experienced categories. The competition will be followed as always by the annual BUTTS Ball, a black tie event consisting of a three course meal and disco.
