about axe throwing
Axe throwing is available for ages 10+ and sessions are 45 minutes long.
Axe throwing has historically been an event in lumberjack competitions and the modern sport involves a competitor throwing an axe at a target, attempting to hit the bullseye as near as possible.
You don't need to wear a check shirt but we do provide an all-important safety briefing! This is followed by expert tuition for novices and axe throwing champions alike.
The session can be as relaxed or as competitive as you would like to make it. You’ll be shoulder to shoulder with your friends, family or colleagues, slinging axes and landing bullseyes in no time!
