Visit any Backyard Axe Throwing League venue on Thursday, April 26th  from 7 – 10pm and take advantage of our FREE open house of axe throwing! The open house will take place across all 13 BATL locations in North America as our way of saying thanks to the BATL community.

No advance registration is needed, and everyone is welcome! If that wasn’t enough to convince you, we’ll also be giving away prizes at each location. Our expert staff will be on hand to guide you towards the bullseye, giving one-on-one coaching the entire night.  We pioneered the sport of urban axe throwing, so it's no surprise that our coaches are the best in the world.

All BATL venues across North America offer public walk-in axe throwing, weekly league play, and private events for groups of 6 and up (perfectly suited for adult birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate team building events, and much more). Stop by with your friends and family at any location during our open house to see what all the fuss is about!  It's time to Join the BATL!

Straun Riley, a league member at our BATL Pickering location, took home the Athlete of the Week honours from CityNews Toronto last week.  You can watch the segment here.

He is an accomplished axe thrower, who recently took the title at this year's National Axe Throwing Championships hosted by The Backyard Axe Throwing League in Toronto.  The tournament consisted of 128 of the best axe throwers in North America, and the finals were an over-the-top display of sportsmanship that won't soon be forgotten.

If you're looking to join in on the fun of urban axe throwing (pioneered by BATL back in 2006), then consider joining our weekly leagues. Our axe throwing leagues run for 8 weeks.  The first 7 weeks consist of a 28 game round-robin between you and your peers, and it all culminates on week 8 with a top 16 double elimination playoff with one goal:  to crown a single champion.  If you don’t know how to throw an axe, then no worries, everybody has to start somewhere - even Straun.  Each of our axe throwing leagues are run by skilled staff, who are there to help you out every bit of the way.  Be awesome.  Join a league!
