We here at The Backyard Axe Throwing League couldn’t be more proud of the community we’ve built since our inception in a Toronto backyard in 2006 (hence the name). Over 11 years, BATL has been a breeding ground for a diverse and talented community, brought together by the axe. Our league members and guests have come from all walks of life – musicians, lawyers, doctors, trades workers, restaurant industry staff, and the list goes on.
Last night, all 13 BATL venues across North America opened their doors to the public for a night of free axe throwing as a way to give back to the community, and it was a huge success. Hundreds of both experienced and new axe throwers came out in hoards last night to enjoy an evening of fun and friendly competition, all under the guidance of our world-renowned staff – the best in the world at what they do. Our venue in London, Ontario even treated its guests to a live music performance after the axe throwing, spearheaded by a band consisting of league members. Like we said, our community is awesome. Keep your eyes peeled for our next open house, and in the interim consider visiting us for a private event (for groups of 2 and up, perfectly suited for bachelor/bachelorette parties, adult birthdays, corporate team-building outings, and much more) or registering for our weekly league play (with new seasons starting up in two week time!). It’s time to join the BATL!
