The Home of Axe Throwing

BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League was created in the Toronto backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006.  What began as a personal passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, and today over 1 million people have participated in the thrill of throwing axes at one of our locations, including our Toronto East facility near the Harbourfront and our Toronto West facility in the Stock Yards Village.

Party & Corporate Event Ideas

We believe that throwing an epic party in the City of Toronto 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.  Trophies and clothing are available as add-ons for an even more personal touch.

Axe Throwing Facilities

Our axe throwing ‘arenas’ are comparable 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 incredible. The Backyard Axe Throwing League offers the best facilities for people of all abilities to compete and have a good time, including our location with 16 targets in downtown core of the City of Toronto.

Axe Throwing Format

For both residents and visitors to downtown Toronto, Old Toronto and the GTA, our private axe throwing events begin with practice and instruction from BATL’s expert coaches before starting a round robin and group playoff tournament (no previous experience in axe throwing necessary).

Toronto Axe Throwing Leagues

Our weekly axe throwing leagues are the best excuse to get together with friends, make a few new ones and enjoy a little competition.  With no experience necessary you’ll compete individually while receiving tips from our friendly BATL Toronto East and BATL Toronto West coaches – and plenty of time to hang out between throwing.  Check out some videos from recent axe throwing competitions.
