Axe Throwing in Toronto

BATL was founded in a Toronto backyard by CEO Matt Wilson in 2006, and today over 2 million people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at our locations across North America. Each of our Toronto venues is centrally located near the Harbourfront, St. Lawrence Market, Financial District, the Junction and Yorkdale Mall, and offer axe throwing for group sizes ranging from 2 to over 100 people.

The Home of Axe Throwing

BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League was created in the Toronto backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006.  What began as a personal passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, and today over 2 million people have participated in the thrill of throwing axes at one of our locations, including our Toronto East facility near the Harbourfront and our Toronto West facility in the Stock Yards Village.

Party & Corporate Event Ideas

We believe that throwing an epic party in the City of Toronto should be fun AND simple.That’s why our axe throwing event packages include 1.5 hours of throwing depending on your group 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 personal touch.

Axe Throwing Format

For both residents and visitors to downtown Toronto, Old Toronto and the GTA, our private axe throwing events begin with practice and instruction from BATL’s expert coaches before starting a round robin and group playoff tournament (no previous experience in axe throwing necessary).

Toronto Fundraising

If you’d like to request The Backyard Axe Throwing League to support an upcoming non-profit fundraising event, please contact BATL Toronto for eligibility requirements.  See some of the great charities we’ve been thrilled to support!

Outdoor Axe Throwing in Toronto

Our outdoor axe throwing packages are fully insured, equipped and available for both full and half-day bookings throughout Toronto, Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area.  Our team of expert coaches can provide a customized axe throwing experience based on your specific group needs to make your next event one of the most great memories of the year for everyone who participates at BATL Toronto East and BATL Toronto West.

Toronto Axe Throwing Leagues

Our weekly axe throwing leagues are the best excuse to get together with friends, make a few new ones and enjoy a little competition.  With no experience necessary you’ll compete individually while receiving tips from our friendly BATL Toronto East and BATL Toronto West coaches – and plenty of time to hang out between throwing.  Check out some videos from recent axe throwing competitions.
