Now that we’ve had a few days to process and recover, we’d like to thank the National Axe Throwing Federation and all of their sponsors – notably Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company – for organizing an amazing 2018 All-Star Weekend, including the 7th annual National Axe Throwing Championship that BATL had the pleasure of hosting.
The best axe throwers in the world, 128 of them to be exact, came to BATL Toronto East and North from far and wide to compete in a day-long tournament. In the end, BATL Pickering’s own Straun Riley took the top spot (prize money included!) with an over-the-top performance, and a rubber match big axe clutch against BATL London’s Aaron Gerrard proved to be the winning throw.
We’d like to thank everyone from all axe throwing locations across the world that came out to call The Backyard Axe Throwing League home for a day, and we are already eagerly counting down the days to the 8th annual National Axe Throwing Championship!
