Happy New Year from all of us here at BATL! With the near year comes something to get excited about: new seasons of our axe throwing leagues! While many people know about BATL because of our world-famous private axe events, the Backyard Axe Throwing League’s roots are firmly entrenched in just that – our leagues. Starting in a Toronto backyard in 2006, BATL’s leagues have grown to thousands of members all across North America that meet weekly to go head to head in friendly competition – and make some new pals along the way.
Our axe throwing leagues run for 8 weeks. The first 7 weeks consist of a 28 game round-robin between you and your peers, and it all culminates on week 8 with a top 16 double elimination playoff with one goal: to crown a single champion. If you don’t know how to throw an axe, then no worries, everybody has to start somewhere. Each of our axe throwing leagues is run by skilled staff (who are also league members themselves), who are there to help you out every bit of the way.
So what are you waiting for? Be awesome. Join a league.
