BATL Novi Now Officially Licensed

BATL (Squibbler)

We’re constantly working on improving the customer experience at all BATL locations across North America – which is why we’re happy to announce that BATL Novi is now fully licensed, with a bar and menu of cooked shareable foods delivered to your throwing lanes during your visit, along with a small concession stand with snacks and cold drinks available for purchase. This ensures that you and your guests don’t get thirsty while you’re on the quest to be an axe throwing champion. Be sure to put a trip to BATL on the top of your list of things to do while in the Detroit area!

BATL Novi

The Backyard Axe Throwing League Novi opened earlier this year and is the premier axe throwing facility in metro Detroit. The venue is located at Twelve Mile Crossing at Fountain Walk near West Oaks Shopping Centre and is capable of hosting parties ranging from 2 – 100 + people. The Backyard Axe Throwing League Novi is our 13th location in North America (serving Metro Detroit, Flint, Lansing, Monroe, Jackson, Ann Arbor and will boast everything that the Backyard Axe Throwing League has become famous for – the best urban axe throwing in the world. This includes private event bookings for groups of 2 and up (perfectly suited for bachelor/bachelorette parties, adult birthdays, corporate team building events, and much more), in addition to our weekly public walk-in sessions.

About BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League

The Backyard Axe Throwing League was founded in 2006 in a Toronto backyard, making us the first to pioneer the sport of urban axe throwing. Since then, we have expanded to 13 locations in North America including Toronto, London, Niagara, Calgary, Ottawa, and many more (with even more on the way) – bringing axe throwing to countless guests. Last year, BATL started its expansion into the USA with locations in Nashville and Chicago, followed by our newest venue in Novi, Michigan. With US locations in Madison, Wisconsin; Houston, Texas; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Scottsdale, Arizona set to open this year – we’re just getting started!

If you’re looking for a reason to get involved with the best axe throwing experience in the world, look no further. BATL Novi has you covered.

Public Walk-in Sessions

Looking for a casual way to get involved with the sport of axe throwing? All BATL venues offer public walk-in sessions (no reservations required) every weekend. It’s the perfect way to test the water when it comes to axe throwing, with little commitment. Our expert coaches are on hand to guide you the whole way, so whether you’re new to the sport or looking to hone in on your skill BATL has you covered.

Corporate Parties

Summer employee parties often take a back seat to their more popular cousin, the winter holiday party. Sure, winter holiday parties are full of good tidings and cheer, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook the importance of a summer party. BATL is the perfect venue to host your next staff outing. Our private events last 2-2.5 hours and are run in the safe and comfortable environment that BATL has become famous for by our expertly trained staff, who also happen to be the best axe throwers in the planet. They will run you and your guests through training to ensure that you’re all sticking bullseyes before launching you into a round-robin tournament, followed by a playoff (in order to crown a champion, of course). A little friendly competition is a key to a team-building outing so if you’re looking for the perfect event for your next corporate party in Novi, look no further than BATL.

Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties

Do you need ideas for planning a bachelor party that all the guys will enjoy? If bowling, paintball, or escape rooms have already been done, or if you’re looking for an exciting activity for the entire group – no matter what their age, skill or fitness level, then think about axe throwing. If you’re the bachelor party organizer, BATL is here to make your life easy. Most BATL locations offer full bar service and food menus, meaning all you and your guests have to do is show up and leave the rest to us. Constantly ranking at the top of “Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Destination” lists on web blogs and magazines, a trip to BATL will ensure a day to remember for the bride or groom to be.

Join An Axe Throwing League

If one day of axe throwing doesn’t sound like enough to satisfy you – don’t worry. You’re not alone. When we started back in 2006, the Backyard Axe Throwing League was just that – a league of friends that got together every week in a downtown Toronto backyard to compete and hone their skill. League play will be starting soon in Novi and is the perfect excuse to get out of your house once a week and meet some new friends, all while engaging in some friendly competition.

Our axe throwing leagues run for 8 weeks, completely under the guidance of our resident axe gurus. Each season consists of round-robin style tournament play, where you’ll throw 28 games against other people in the league, culminating in a top 16 double elimination playoff on week 8. Our leagues are suitable for people of all skill levels, with staff on hand at all times ready to give you tips and tricks to make sure that you’re hitting the bullseye. League play falls under the National Axe Throwing Federation umbrella, the worlds foremost governing body of the sport of axe throwing (of which BATL is a founding member). Being part of the NATF also gives you access to the most advanced statistic tracking in the sport of urban axe throwing. Be awesome. Join a league.

Novi, it’s time to Join the BATL!
