The Home of Axe Throwing

BATL, the Backyard Axe Throwing League was established in the backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006.  What initiated as a personal passion created during a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth exposure in Toronto, and today over 1 million people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at one of our locations, including our Pickering facility near Brock Road.
