The Backyard Axe Throwing League offers axe throwing on a walk-in basis at designated times each week.  Our coaches will be on hand to instruct those who have never thrown an axe before, and offer tips on technique for more experienced throwers looking to sharpen their skills.

Similar to public skating, skiing or swimming – guests throw in a common area with other participants, and may need to make allowance for shared space based on friendly guidance from your BATL coach.

For a more personal experience, BATL offers private axe throwing events lasting 1 hour for groups as small as 2 people, with advance booking.  Events are lead by dedicated staff who will coach you on your own set of lanes before running a custom tournament to crown a champion.

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.

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!
