We’re the original Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL). Our mission is to show people the power of being good to each other, using the axe as a tool to build community inspired by our backyard roots. We’re immensely proud to have been the first organization in the world to offer an urban venue to experience the thrill of indoor axe throwing in leagues, walk-ins and private events such as parties and team building.
BATL was founded at the home of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006. What started as a personal passion sparked by a summer camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today hundreds of thousands of people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at one of BATL’s nine locations. In the past 10 years BATL has been covered extensively by local, regional and national press; growing from our original backyard roots to today operating nine locations across Canada, including Calgary, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Pickering and Toronto.
As the sport of axe throwing has grown, BATL has also played a lead role as a founding member of the National Axe Throwing Federation (NATF), together with other of the most premier urban axe throwing organizations worldwide since its inception in 2016.
