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.

Axe Throwing FAQs

Short Answer: Yes. We do take walk-ins for the Throw.

However… walk-in availability depends on our lane & staff availability and is first come, first served.

To ensure you have lanes when you want them, we strongly recommend making a booking ahead of your visit.

Our basic Throw sessions can accommodate anywhere from 2 up to 10 players with more overall time the larger your group gets.

The Tourney is a flat rate for groups ranging from 6 to 24 players.

Our private events can range anywhere from 2-70 players.

Sometimes when a booking is unavailable, our website may tell you, be grayed out, or you wont see the item. This can happen with any of the following circumstances:

  1. The date picked is too far out to book (Throw bookings can be booked a max of 18 days out while Tourneys are 30 days)
  2. We are closed on your desired day/time
  3. We are already fully booked for your desired day/time, check back later if availability changes

While our Throw duration is the perfect amount of throwing time for most, we provide time add-ons for customers who wish to extend their time throwing with us.

An extra 10 minutes is $20 while an additional 20 minutes is $30. This is charged to the group as a whole, not per person.

We do not book time add-ons ahead though, bookable only if our availability allows it. Be sure to give us a call ahead of booking to check what the availability looks like if you anticipate wanting more throw time. We cannot guarantee availability, but we can give you a fairly good idea.

Alternatively, you can simply book for more players than are in your party.
