      Welcome to Our Backyard

      BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League, was created in our founder, Matt Wilson’s backyard in 2006. What began as a personal passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today over 1 million people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at one of BATL’s indoor venues.
