Enjoy the BATL axe throwing experience offered at 9pm on Fridays and 6pm and 9pm on Saturdays across all BATL locations in North America.

Enjoy the same BATL experience with other guests who have bought tickets to learn how to throw. Activity and throwing times may vary based on the number of people participating. View our event guide.

Things begin with practice and instruction (no experience necessary!) from BATL’s expert coaches, before starting a fun round robin tournament followed by a group playoff!  Public Events require tickets purchased in advance and cost $40.99 – $42.99 + tax per person.

Each venue offers the best facilities for people of all abilities to compete and have fun.  Our axe throwing ‘arenas’ are similar to a cross between a batting cage and bowling alley, with private space for groups of any size, and a music selection that makes every visit amazing.

For a more personal experience, BATL offers private axe throwing events for groups with advance booking.

      Welcome to Our Backyard

      BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League, was created in our founder, Matt Wilson’s backyard in 2006. What began as a personal passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today over 1 million people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at one of BATL’s indoor venues.
