Complete Country And Meghan Patrick At BATL

BATL (Squibbler)

Complete Country is Canada’s voice for country music coverage from coast to coast.  More than just a news outlet, they keep fans up to date by offering in-depth looks at popular stars through constant engagement and unique audio/video content production.  Recently the Toronto East location of The Backyard Axe Throwing League had the pleasure of hosting Canadian country music star Meghan Patrick, with Complete Country in tow.  We had her out to throw a few axes while she was filming a video promoting her new album, Country Music Made Me Do It, before going off on a summer tour in support of the album.  Plaid shirts and axe throwing go together like cookies and milk, so it’s no surprise that BATL venues across North America have played hosed too many country music stars donned in plaid.  With the guidance of our skilled staff members (axe gurus, as we like to call them) Meghan was sticking bullseyes in no time.  If you’re a Meghan Patrick fan, luckily for you Complete Country caught the whole thing on film – and you can check out the entire interview here.

Celebrity Visits at the Backyard Axe Throwing League

When you do something for 12 years, you’re bound to get noticed.  The Backyard Axe Throwing League has been host to countless celebrities over the years – both for recreational fun and for filming.  Athletes such as NBA star Rick Fox, NHL players Mike Cammalleri and George Parros, George Armstrong, and Darren Pang; actors and actresses such as Ruby Rose, Vin Diesel, Gerrard Butler, Rick Mercer, and Alex Høgh Andersen; and musical acts such as Amon Amarth, The Washboard Union, Terri Clark, and the list goes on.  It’s easy to see the appeal of throwing cold steel into the wood, for celebrities and non-celebrities alike.

Luckily, making a trip to BATL doesn’t require being a celebrity.  We pioneered the urban axe throwing back in 2006 – and have been known as the foremost authority on the sport and the best at what we do ever since.  The Backyard Axe Throwing League has 14 locations across North America (in Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener, London, Niagara Falls, Hamilton, Calgary, Squamish, Chicago, Nashville, and Detroit) with more locations set to open later this year, so finding a venue to sharpen your skills has never been easier.

Your Private Axe Throwing Event

A trip to BATL offers a chance to unwind for you and your guests, in an exhilarating yet safe environment.  It’s an outside the box way to plan an outing for you and your friends or colleagues and will guarantee to leave a lasting impression on them while you’re at it.  Each BATL venue across North America takes bookings for groups of 2 and up, 7 days a week, and our private group bookings are perfectly suited for any event/occasion.  If you’re trying to find a unique way to enjoy your “last fling before the ring”, a trip to BATL is your go-to spot for your next bachelor or bachelorette party.  Looking for an adult birthday party that not only gives you a chance to converse with friends but also engage in some friendly competition?  Look no further than a trip to BATL.  And if it’s a corporate team building event that you’re after, you’d be surprised to know that the power of the axe is one of the best ways to build camaraderie, positivity, and engagement.  Nothing says team building like beating your boss in a match of axe throwing!

BATL offers two types of private event bookings: 1 hour bookings for groups of 2-5 people, and 2-2.5 hour bookings for groups of 6 and up.  No matter which private event you book, you’ll get the same thing that BATL has become famous for: the best one on one instruction from our skilled and friendly staff members, followed by a round robin style tournament and single elimination playoff – all orchestrated by our staff, leaving you with nothing to do but throw axes and enjoy the company of your guests.  Many BATL locations offer complete bar and food services, which means even less planning for you.
