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.

In addition to University shooting, many members take part in external competitions held throughout the county and sometimes even farther afield.
