THROW AXES, DRINK, HAVE A BLAST.

What a great night we had. Elliot our coach was awesome, informative, great coaching and great fun. Our whole party all had the best time at BATL and loved it!

CARLOS

Lotsa Space, Great Drink Options!

I absolutely love coming here, super fun vibe and very welcoming. Now matter what your skill level is you will have a great time. Easy parking, lots of drink options, and plenty of room for a bigger crowd.

TINA

HIGH TECH FUN WITH PREMIUM!

I thought after the "Premium" training demo it'd be open play, but instead they encouraged participation in this very cool championship roster, all projected onto the overhead TVs so everyone could see the scores.

How Does BATL Axe Throwing Work?

You get to throw in our 'arenas' which are like a batting cage and bowling alley Frankenstein'd into one way more awesome experience. All of our experiences include:

1. Coaching And Safety Briefing - Our expert coaches start your group off on the right footing by teaching you how to safely and effectively throw axes.


2. Learn Some Axe Throwing Games - We teach you some fun axe throwing games. Cause, what's better than a little competition among friends?


3. Private Space - After coaching, your group gets their own private targets plus personal axes to throw with BATL.


4. You Cheers While You Throw - With a great selection of drinks from our bar! Food can also be ordered or bring your own favorites in, with no plating fees.


5. End The Adventure, Exhilarated! But dying to come back again with more friends.

Hitting The Target is A Good Start. But There's A Bit More To It.

Axe throwing is like darts. Except with axes. Oh, and the scoring system is different. And there's a thing called the 'clutch'. Ok, it's not like darts at all but we guarantee your first 'bullseye' will make you feel amazing!

FAQ

How does an axe throwing event work?

At BATL, we keep things fun for everyone.   It’s best to book a reservation ahead of time. When you arrive you’ll be asked to sign-in (using your own phone).  

Then one of our expert coaches will go through safety points and show you how all the basics on how to throw. You’ll practice throwing for a bit to get the hang of it.  Grab a drink or some food and you’re totally ready!

If you’ve booked a BATL Private Lane – you and your group can throw on your own. If you want, we can show you some games to play. 

If you booked BATL Premium – Tournament Style / Private Lane – a dedicated coach stays with you for your event.  It’s a fun tournament –  round robin, playoffs and championship! Let the trash talk begin.  And have some throws with our Big Axe as well. 

Why do I need to put down a deposit when booking?

The small deposit reserves your lane, the date and time you asked for! The deposit will be refunded automatically when your event starts!

Do I need to make a reservation?

A reservation is best to make sure you get the time you want. It's super easy to book online - even for same day bookings. If you have questions, you can chat with us online at batlgrounds.com or email us at info@batlgrounds.com

Walk-in/drop-by sessions are available without a reservation during specific scheduled hours. Check out the website for hours at your location.

When are you open?

We are open for events by advance reservation, same-day reservation and walk-ins. To get the time you want we recommend booking it!  Its easy - 3 minutes online. 

Advance reservation will give you the most options for times; while same day booking and walk-in times are more limited. Times vary by location. Please check the location page on this site before you walk-in to confirm we are open!

To find a time available to make a reservation, we’ve made it easy – check out our locations and choose the location you are interested in. All available times are displayed.

Can I cancel or reschedule?

We get it, stuff happens. If you need to cancel or reschedule your event, as long as you give us at least seven days notice, your deposit will be refunded or transferred to your new reservation, whichever you prefer.

If you cancel within one week of your scheduled event date your deposit is not refundable or transferable to a new reservation.

What is the minimum age or other requirements?

The minimum age required to throw is 12. Everyone needs to have closed-toe shoes. Spectators are always welcome (no cost).

Our standard waiver needs to be signed by a parent or guardian for any minor (anyone under the age of majority) to participate.

For groups of minors, a parent or guardian needs to stay with the group while they are throwing. No un-waivered minors may be left on BATL premises without their parent or guardian’s supervision.

Are there food and drinks available?

Absolutely! Our BATL locations are licensed. We serve a wide range of beer, wine, ciders, coolers and bar rail drinks (options vary by venue). Cold drinks are also available. Most locations have a menu of delicious, shareable items served directly to your throwing lanes. Please check the venues page for specific menus and food/drinks availability and advance ordering.
