The Backyard Axe Throwing League in Metro Detroit
The Backyard Axe Throwing League Novi opened earlier this month and is the premier axe throwing facility in metro Detroit. The venue is located at Twelve Mile Crossing at Fountain Walk near West Oaks Shopping Centre and is capable of hosting parties ranging from 2 – 100 + people. The Backyard Axe Throwing League Novi is our 13th location in North America (serving Metro Detroit, Flint, Lansing, Monroe, Jackson, Ann Arbor and will boast everything that the Backyard Axe Throwing League has become famous for – the best urban axe throwing in the world. This includes private event bookings for groups of 2 and up (perfectly suited for bachelor/bachelorette parties, adult birthdays, corporate team building events, and much more), in addition to our weekly public walk-in sessions.
The Backyard Axe Throwing League was founded in 2006 in a Toronto backyard, making us the first to pioneer the sport of urban axe throwing. Since then, we have expanded to 13 locations in North America including Toronto, London, Niagara, Calgary, Ottawa, and many more (with even more on the way) – bringing axe throwing to countless guests. Last year, BATL started its expansion into the USA with locations in Nashville and Chicago, followed by our newest venue in Novi, Michigan. With US locations in Madison, Wisconsin; Houston, Texas; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Scottsdale, Arizona set to open this year – we’re just getting started!
If you’re looking for a reason to get involved with the best axe throwing experience in the world, Backyard Axe Throwing League Novi has you covered.

Join An Axe Throwing League
If one day of axe throwing doesn’t sound like enough to satisfy you – don’t worry. You’re not alone. When we started back in 2006, the Backyard Axe Throwing League was just that – a league of friends that got together every week in a downtown Toronto backyard to compete and hone their skill. League play will be starting soon in Novi and is the perfect excuse to get out of your house once a week and meet some new friends, all while engaging in some friendly competition.
Our axe throwing leagues run for 8 weeks, completely under the guidance of our resident axe gurus. Each season consists of round-robin style tournament play, where you’ll throw 28 games against other people in the league, culminating in a top 16 double elimination playoff on week 8. Our leagues are suitable for people of all skill levels, with staff on hand at all times ready to give you tips and tricks to make sure that you’re hitting the bullseye. League play falls under the National Axe Throwing Federation umbrella, the worlds foremost governing body of the sport of axe throwing (of which BATL is a founding member). Being part of the NATF also gives you access to the most advanced statistic tracking in the sport of urban axe throwing. Be awesome. Join a league.
