Party Planning In Calgary

abailey ()

It’s nearly summer in Calgary when Alberta transforms the entire area into one of the most beautiful backdrops in all of Canada. The city of Calgary sits in the sunny eastern foothills of Canada’s Rocky Mountains, where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet. It is the major urban centre for the entire southern half of the province of Alberta and is surrounded by an area of profound beauty with an unspoiled, resource-rich natural environment. The rapid growth of Calgary is largely thanks to its status as the centre of Canada’s oil industry, but the city is much more than that. It’s a dining destination, an arts hot spot, a nature-lovers dream, and as evidenced in its nickname, Cowtown, is steeped in Western culture (thanks in large to the Calgary Stampede – a massive rodeo that takes place in July). No matter what brings you to Cowtown this summer, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Almost 4 years ago Backyard Axe Throwing League Calgary opened up shop in the North East and has been bringing the urban sport of axe throwing to not just Airdrie, Chestermere, Calgary, and the surrounding area but with guests coming from all over Alberta and Western Canada. Located near Sunridge Mall at Deerfoot Trail and 16th Ave. NE, BATL Calgary offers the best indoor axe throwing experience – pioneered by us at the Backyard Axe Throwing League back in 2006.

If you’re looking to plan a party in the Calgary area, look no further. We at BATL believe that planning a party should be easy. The Backyard Axe Throwing League is a premier adult party destination not only in Calgary but also across North America. Our Calgary venue has a fully licensed bar and kitchen, meaning that you and your guests can stay hydrated and keep your hunger at bay while engaging in friendly competition.

BATL Calgary 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.

Wondering if axe throwing is right for your next party? You’re in luck. Parties at BATL Calgary are perfectly suited to any adult gatherings (bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate team building, adult birthdays, etc) and many BATL locations offer complete bar and food services (including a full bar and kitchen in BATL Calgary), which means even less planning for you. These are some of the most popular outings at BATL.

Corporate Parties

Summer employee parties often take a back seat to their more popular cousin, the winter holiday party. Sure, winter holiday parties are full of good tidings and cheer, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook the importance of a summer party. BATL Calgary is the perfect venue to host your next staff outing. Our private events last 2-2.5 hours and are run in the safe and comfortable environment that BATL has become famous for by our expertly trained staff, who also happen to be the best axe throwers on the planet. They will run you and your guests through training to ensure that you’re all sticking bullseyes before launching you into a round-robin tournament, followed by a playoff (in order to crown a champion, of course). A little friendly competition is a key to a team-building outing so if you’re looking for the perfect event for your next corporate party in Calgary, look no further than BATL.

Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties

Do you need ideas for planning a bachelor/bachelorette party everyone will enjoy? If bowling, paintball, or escape rooms have already been done, or if you’re looking for an exciting activity for the entire group – no matter what their age, skill or fitness level, then think about axe throwing. If you’re the bachelor/bachelorette party organizer, BATL Calgary is here to make your life easy. Most BATL locations offer full bar service and food menus, meaning all you and your guests have to do is show up and leave the rest to us. Constantly ranking at the top of “Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Destination” lists on web blogs and magazines, a trip to BATL will ensure a day to remember for the bride or groom to be.

Adult Birthday Parties

Looking for a new idea to celebrate a birthday that everyone will enjoy? If bowling, paintball, or escape rooms have already been done, or if you’re looking for a fun activity for an entire group no matter what their age, skill or fitness level, then think about axe throwing. Catering exclusively to adults since 2006, a trip to BATL Calgary is the perfect place for you and your friends to ring in another trip around the sun.
