Meet Sydney.  A Niagara Falls native, who stumbled across the Backyard Axe Throwing League and fell in love right away.  After leaving the glamorous world of craft beer packaging, Sydney noticed BATL moving into her neighborhood and had to be a part of it. You'll find this fun-loving coach running our axe throwing walk-in hours, hosting private events, reigning in bachelor parties and throwing in our Monday night axe throwing league.

At home Sydney is an Artist, movie buff, and Dorito enthusiast. Once described as an "Axe Throwing Goddess", Sydney throws with passion, style, and pride. We're thrilled to have her as part of the BATL Niagara team! #batlstaffsunday

BATL Staff Sunday With Hooter From Niagara

General Niagara Falls

Meet Matt Houtby (aka Hooter, aka Johnny Vegas). Hooter first experienced axe throwing during his own bachelor party in Toronto and knew this couldn't be a one and done moment for him. As a Niagara native, lucky for him that the Backyard Axe Throwing League would expand to Niagara Falls and Hooter had his resume in before they finished hanging the sign over the front door.

When Hooter isn't the MC of Mayhem running our Sunday Night Axe Throwing League or hosting bachelor parties himself now, he has also been a member of the Canadian Armed Forces for the past 22 years. Having deployed to places like Afghanistan, Bosnia, Romania, Dubai, and Greenland, Hooter is happy to be home on Canadian soil with his wife and three girls and has found a new home at BATL Niagara Falls - and we're proud to have him as part of our team.

Staff Sunday with Averi

Meet Averi, a member of our new Niagara Falls location! After searching high and low for a unique career opportunity, she finally found us. Averi loves both running events at BATL and participating in our weekly axe throwing leagues.  After only a few short months with us, she has found herself addicted to the axe.

When she isn’t helping others master the art of the bullseye, you can find her at home (not so) patiently waiting to come in for her next shift.  After spending her summers in the wilderness teaching people how to camp, learning how to throw an axe transformed her tool used to cut firewood into her new favorite sport.  We’re so glad to have her, and we’re excited to see her skills excel at axe throwing!  Thanks for becoming a part of our team, Averi!#batlstaffsunday
