Started in a backyard, now we’re here.
BATL isn’t just a cool-sounding acronym – and let’s be honest, it sounds really damn cool – it’s also the true declaration of where we started.
In 2006, our CEO Matt Wilson founded BATL in his backyard. At first, it was just a personal passion he discovered while camping. Today, nearly 2 million people have experienced the thrill of axe throwing at our locations.
We were the first in the world to offer an urban venue experience for indoor axe throwing. And we’re proud of that. Now, we offer leagues, walk-ins, and group parties – like stags, bachelor, bachelorette, and team building events.
The sport of axe throwing has grown, and we’re playing a leading role. We’re a founding member of the International Axe Throwing Federation (IATF).
