The Cambridge University Bowmen (CUB) is the archery club for the University of Cambridge.
We are the Cambridge University Bowmen (CUB), the archery club for the University. We are an inclusive club, with members from across the University — staff and students. In addition to our experienced members, who regularly compete in regional and national archery competitions, we also play a big part in training new archers, through our beginners’ course and competitive novice squad. However, we often struggle with the equipment used to teach these new students — we either don’t have enough bows of the right weight or handedness or when something is damaged, we are unable to replace it. Therefore, any donations made will help maintain and replace old equipment for teaching new students. The majority of our archers learn at university, so having suitable equipment to train these students is crucial for us to remain a competitive club!
To support the next generation of Cambridge students embarking upon a dual career, the University of Cambridge Athlete Performance Programme (UCAPP) is helping to expand the roster of world-class athletes who shaped their sporting career while studying at Cambridge.
