Axe Throwing

What is it?

Founded in 2006, the sport of axe throwing made its start in a backyard of Toronto. Today, it’s exploded to dozens of locations and hundreds of thousands of throwers.

Similar to darts, players throw a 1.5 lb hatchet at a circular bulls-eye target 15 ft away and score points based on placement.

Matches are played with a head-to-head format of two players throwing at their own targets playing 3 rounds of 5 throws each.

Our Total Tournament Bookings play out with a round-robin seeded double elimination tournament. You’ll know who the best thrower is, and the winner gets those sweet bragging rights.

Never thrown before? No problem! Our MCs will have you sticking axes in no time. Anyone can do it, and you’ll be sure to have a great time!

Safety

Even though the sport is safe, it still includes inherent risks we mitigate with our rules and staff. You will have a Monitoring Coach in the throwing lanes with you, teaching you how to throw, going over the game, and monitoring for safety. We follow tried and true rules and regulations to ensure you have a fun and safe experience.
