The Home of Axe Throwing

In 2006, The Backyard Axe Throwing League was created in the backyard of CEO Matt Wilson.  What started as a personal hobby sparked by a camping trip with friends soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today over 1 million people have experienced the excitement of axe throwing at one of our locations, including our Novi facility at Twelve Mile Crossing at Fountain Walk.

Party & Corporate Event Ideas

At BATL, we believe that throwing an epic party in the City of Novi should be fun AND simple.  That’s why our axe throwing event packages include 1 – 2.5 hours of throwing depending on your event 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 unique touch.

Axe Throwing Facilities

BATL offers the top-rated facilities for people of all abilities to compete and have a great experience, including our location with 16 targets in metro Detroit.  Our axe throwing ‘arenas’ are similar to a mix between a batting cage and bowling alley, with private space for groups of any size, and a music selection that makes every visit one of a kind.

Axe Throwing Format

For both residents and tourists to metro Detroit, our private axe throwing events begin with practice and instruction (no prior experience necessary!) from the Backyard Axe Throwing League’s Novi’s skilled coaches before starting a round robin and group playoff tournament of axe throwing.
