What is Indoor Axe Throwing?2018-05-27T22:29:36+00:00

Axe throwing has taken off in Canada as a competitive sport for more than a decade. Axe Throwing Society is excited to bring the sport out of the woods, and into the city in South Florida. Axe throwing is an individual sport played against other members of a group, similar to darts. Score points are based on where your hatchet hits the bullseye on the wooden target.

How does it work?2018-05-27T22:40:44+00:00

Group events at Axe Throwing Society last 1.5-2 hours and must be booked in advance. Our events start with safety training and one-on-one throwing practice with one of our axeperts (expert coaches). Our axeperts take care of the scoring and the flow of your group’s tournament so you can enjoy it and focus on hitting that bullseye! Once you’ve sharpened your skills, we’ll start off a round robin tournament followed by a final knock out round to award the axe throwing champion.

How do you play?2018-05-27T22:42:21+00:00

Two throwers compete at a time, axe-to-axe. Each thrower gets five throws per round. The score points are calculated for each axe that sticks to the target. The highest score wins the round, best of three round wins match! Our axeperts take care of the training, scoring, and flow of your group’s tournament so you can enjoy it and focus on hitting that bullseye!

Is axe throwing safe?2018-05-27T23:07:24+00:00

Safety is our number one priority at Axe Throwing Society! The format and the construction of our throwing lanes are safety based. We are strict in making sure that everyone is throwing the axes in a safe manner.

Only the two active competitors throwing are allowed inside the throwing area. We ask that all other competitors wait behind in the lanes in the safety zone. We have an expert coach (axepert) who supervises your whole event, starting with one-on-one safety and technique training. They will continue to make sure all safety protocols are adhered to the whole time.

We do not let anyone intoxicated throw. You can drink beer or wine, but if an axepert notices that you are drunk, we’ll set your axe down!
