Welcome to Our Backyard

What began as a personal passion of Matt Wilson, 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. To learn more about the creation of BATL, The Backyard Axe Throwing League, was created by our founder, Matt Wilson in his backyard in 2006.

The Home of Axe Throwing

We have locations across North America that offer a fully licensed bar and kitchen serving local beers, wine and coolers, as well as a delicious shareable food! You don’t want to miss the opportunity to enjoy food and drinks while you throw!

Your Experience at BATL

For a more private experience, our private axe throwing event packages in Canada and the United States include 2 – 2.5 hours of throwing depending on your group size, and a private space to fit your party’s needs.

We have the most talented, fun and friendly individuals on staff that you’ll ever meet. Over 300 coaches and support staff currently work with us across all BATL locations. Nothing we do would be possible without our amazing team.
