The Home of Axe Throwing Since 2006

Get #ExtremeSorta Today

Founded in 2006, at BATL we’re immensely proud of our axe throwing community, and to be the world’s first organization to offer an urban venue to experience the thrill of indoor axe throwing in leagues, walk-ins and private events.

Our goal is to help you create an unforgettable experience with friends and family.  Each BATL venue offers expert axe throwing coaches and the best facilities for people of all abilities to compete and have fun.

Throwing an Epic Party Should be Fun AND Simple

That’s why our axe throwing event packages include 1 – 2.5 hours of throwing depending on group size, flexible food options and private space to fit your needs.  Trophies and attire are also available for an even more personal touch.

Our axe throwing ‘arenas’ are similar to a cross between a batting cage and bowling alley, with private space for groups of any size, and a music selection that makes every visit amazing.
