Group Event Questions
Do I throw as part of a team?
Axe throwing is an individual sport played with and against other members of a group.
How long does it last?
Open Throw sessions last 1 hour while Private Group events last 2.5 hours. Open Throw sessions and Private Group Events must be booked in advance.
Will you teach me how to do it safely?!
Our group events start with safety instructions and 1-on-1 throwing practice, led by our fully trained coaches in a private throwing area.
What happens during the Private Group event?
Once you’ve sharpened your skills, we’ll kick off a round robin tournament followed by final knockout round to award an axe throwing champion. Our coaches will take care of all scoring and smooth flow of the tournament so you can relax and enjoy the sport.

Open Throw sessions are intended for individuals, couples and small groups up to 6 people. Our Private Group events are ideally played with 12 or more people, although we can accommodate smaller groups. 6 is the minimum number of players for our tournaments to work well.
