BATL Staff Sunday With Jon

Meet Jon, a Floor Manager at our #BATL Calgary location.  He's been with the Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL) for over a year, but who's counting? Like most BATL staff, it was love at first throw for Jon. He attended an event with us and hasn't looked back since.

Being an avid gamer, Tough Mudder, hockey enthusiast, and spirited debater Jon has a healthy love of competition, which made axe throwing the perfect fit.  You may catch him engaged in a bit of self deprecating banter, but in the end it's all about having a good time. Because as the saying goes, if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?

Thanks for being part of the BATL family, Jon! #batlstaffsunday

BATL Staff Sunday with Trev

Meet Trev, the GM of our BATL Toronto locations. After spending the last week reliving our yearly Summer Skills competition that took place on Labour Day, it only seemed fitting to shed some light on the man that's helped it run so damn smoothly over the years. Trev is the proverbial man behind the wheel for all of our special competitions, and we can't thank him enough for all he's done.

A founding member in the backyard, Trev is to BATL as beards are to Trev. A multiple time champion, he can also throw an axe with the best of him. 4 years ago, he put down the ganache and pastry molds in his job as a chocolatier (he prefers to be called chocolate man) to turn our BATL Toronto East and West locations into the well-oiled machines they are today. As you can imagine, he hasn't had much sleep (seriously - he even went to a sleep study).

When he's not being an all-around axe God and model employee at The Backyard Axe Throwing League, you might find him wearing purple, burping, hiding under a cottage dock, playing video games on his phone, or yelling at nobody. You will also definitely find him listening to Russian techno.  Yeah, he's weird but in the best way possible.

Thanks for all you do, Trev.

We love you!  #batlstaffsunday

BATL at the Ford City Retro Camp

General London

The Backyard Axe Throwing League attended the inaugural Ford City Retro Camp this past weekend in Windsor, Ontario to provide the thrill of axe throwing. The festival (in its first year) was modeled after summer camps you may remember from your youth, but this time it was also geared towards adults. Will Gordon of our BATL London location summed the event up best in an article from The Windsor Star: “When you throw an axe, you really can’t think about anything else...It’s like the ultimate stress reliever. Plus, it makes an amazing sound. We say it’s all about the sound.”

If you couldn't make it out to the Ford City Retro Camp, don't fret. BATL has locations across North America, with one opening soon in Detroit, which is just minutes from the Windsor border. Each BATL location offers many ways to get involved with axe throwing - from our world famous weekly leagues and public walk-in sessions, to private bookings for groups of 6 and up (perfectly suited for adult birthdays, corporate team building functions, and bachelor/bachelorette parties).
