Axe Throwing Leagues


Our axe throwing league will run for 8 weeks. Players are allowed to have 5 practice throws for warmups (be early for practice throws). For the first 7 weeks everyone will have 4 different matches with 10 throws each match. Your score for each throw is tallied and recorded. This will ensure you’re not ranked based on who you play against; rather your skills at hitting bullseyes and kill shots to achieve top scores. Week 8 are the playoffs, the 16 players with the highest recorded scores will face off against each other in a single elimination tournament to determine who the Axe Throwing Champion?

League Registration Cost:

The cost of the axe throwing league is $120 + tax. Players pay $20 a week, plus tax for the first 6 weeks. Players MUST pay before the start of each league night. NO payment = NO participation. Each week, players are giving one complimentary draft beer and 15% off of food.

League Rules, Regulations, and Scoring:

Our league will follow the same rules, regulations, and scoring as the World Axe Throwing League (WATL). Please click link for a copy of rules regulations and scoring.
