Cleve Archers was founded in 1960 to practice and promote the sport of archery in accordance with the rules of the governing body for the sport, the Grand National Archery Society (now Archery GB).
The club is also affiliated to the regional organisation, Grand Western Archery Society (GWAS).
Cleve Archers is wholly run by volunteers and is one of the largest clubs in the county and a member of Gloucestershire Archery Society.
On the 27 February 2015 Cleve Archers became a Private Limited Company under the Companies Act 2006. Company Number 9463743. The Committee have also taken steps to become a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC). We held a successful EGM to agree all the necessary steps to transfer the assets of the club to the company, including the new field at Moorend, in line with HMRC guidelines, and as a Company Limited by Guarantee provide improved protection for all our members.
