The Home of Axe Throwing

BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League was established in the backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006.  What began as a personal passion ignited by a camping trip soon travelled through word of mouth in Toronto, and today over 1 million people have experienced the adventure of throwing axes at one of our locations, including our new facility in Houston.

Party & Corporate Event Ideas

We believe that throwing an epic party in the City of Houston should be fun AND simple.  That’s why our axe throwing event packages include 1 – 2.5 hours of throwing depending on your group size, flexible food options and private space to fit your party’s needs.  To establish an even more personal touch, trophies and clothing are available as add-ons.

Axe Throwing Facilities

BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League offers the best venues for people of all abilities to face off and have fun, including our new location in the heart of Houston, Texas. Our axe throwing ‘arenas’ are comparable to a cross between a bowling alley and batting cage, with private space for groups of any size, and a music selection that makes every visit spectacular.

Axe Throwing Format

For both residents and visitors to Houston, our private axe throwing events start with practice and instruction from BATL’s expert coaches before getting into a round robin and group playoff tournament (no prior experience necessary!).
