The Home of Axe Throwing

BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League was founded in the backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006.  What started as Matt Wilson’s unique passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today over 1 million people have enjoyed the thrill of throwing axes at one of our locations, including our Ottawa venue near the Minto Skating Centre.

Party & Corporate Event Ideas

AT BATL in the City of Ottawa, we believe that throwing an epic party should be fun AND simple.  That’s the reason that our axe throwing event packages include 1 – 2.5 hours of axe throwing depending on your group size, flexible food options and private event space to fit your party’s needs.  Trophies and clothing are available as add-ons for an even more incredible experience.

Axe Throwing Facilities

BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League offers the best facilities for people of all skill levels to compete and have fun, including our location with 22 targets in the heart of Ottawa.  Our axe throwing ‘arenas’ are similar to a cross between a baseball batting cage and urban bowling alley, with private space for groups of any size, and a music selection that makes every visit wonderful.

Axe Throwing Format

Our private axe throwing events begin with practice and instruction (no experience necessary!) from BATL’s highly trained and awesome coaches before starting a round robin and group playoff tournament, for both visitors and residents to Ottawa and the surrounding areas.
