  • Axe throwing in general is a fun activity, great to do with a group of friends, or as part of a team in a tournament. BATL Axe has amazingly pleasant and friendly staff who know their stuff and are dedicated to the sport. I went in for the open house with a friend the other day where we were shown how to throw one or two handed and in tournament style. They have a very large set of ranges and a bar where you can have a seat and drink as you so please. Definitely worth trying out at least, and if you love it, they do leagues, so long term applicable.
  • Great evening with our friends! Events are well supervised and organized, I would definitely go again. This would be great for an evening out with your partner or as a group activity, something everyone could try... Keith was a great host!
  • Second year in a row that we have gone here for my son's birthday, and really enjoyed it both times. Our instructor (Jackie), was really helpful in showing each person what style worked best for them, and I find the playoff portion lots of fun. You don't feel like they are rushing you either. I would recommend this place.
  • Great Great GREAT experience. In the 3 occassions I have gone to BATL AX and I have never regretted it. I have gotten as high as 3rd out if 24. I have come 7 out of 12. I have come second last. It never mattered what place I placed, I had a blast. The staff are incredible and highly energetic and engaging. It is a very safe activity. It is a very fun activity. The fun is amplified by the size or your crew, squad or peeps. Should you fancy a solo endeavour there is a league available to you. Look them up for a good time.
  • Stopped by here on a Sunday during their walk in hours. An hour of axe hurling was only $22.50 with taxes. There's an instructor on hand to teach you how to throw and offer tips to improve. You start off with hatchets and later on can move up to the full sized axe if you want to. I had a lot of fun trying to improve my throws. The instructors take safety seriously, which is good considering that axes are flying through the air. Walk in hours are cheaper than booking a private lane, but you take turns throwing so the amount of time you spend on the lane will depend on how many other walk in clients show up that day. If you're a group of 4 or more, your probably better off booking a private lane. This isn't an activity for people that have difficulty bending their back or anyone that can't grasp a handle with both hands and lift it behind their head. One handed throwing is possible but much harder. Be warned, your abs will be sore the next day. It's a surprisingly good core workout
