Spring Out Of Hibernation With Axe Throwing

By  | 

Sick and tired of staying in every evening, intimidated by snow, sleet, and frigid temperatures, while your friends refuse to brave the weather for any kind of get-together? You can make spring come a little early this year and break out of your hibernating ways by joining an axe throwing league. Played indoors, it’s an all-year-round sport that’s a little like darts, but a lot more fun once you realize you get to hurl full-sized hatchets through the air. While it takes a similar kind of aim and patience, there is no substitute for the cathartic experience of sending wood and steel hurtling through the air and striking the target dead centre.

The axe throwing renaissance is in full swing and there are plenty of ways to play, including booking private parties or going during a walk-in session. More and more venues are offering dedicated hours during the day when people can walk in for informal instruction or play, such as the Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL), with locations in Toronto, Pickering, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Niagara Falls, and Calgary now all offering walk-in periods.

However, one of the most satisfying ways to play, especially if you’re the type of person who likes to get serious about your hobbies, is joining a league. You don’t need to have any experience to join an axe throwing league; coaches will show you how to throw and how to improve your game, plus you’ll become part of a tight-knit (if competitive) community. You won’t ever lack for pointers and there’s plenty of time to get to know your fellow leaguers off the pitch. If you like the sound of throwing axes every week with people who are just as crazy about the game as you are, visit Batlgrounds.com and find out how you can join the next season.

There are plenty of lifestyle benefits to joining a league, like getting active, meeting new people, learning new skills, and carving time out of your week to do something you enjoy. It can be an important way to release stress once a week and recharge with your mind focused for the days ahead, and everyone needs an excuse to get out of the house once in awhile. If traditional sports aren’t up your alley, an alternative sport like axe throwing might be a better way to go about getting out of the house and meeting people on a similar wavelength.

Instead of soliciting your neighbour’s wrath at your own backyard games, why not take it indoors and enjoy axe throwing with some of the best in the city? You can face up against some the pros and find out if you have what it takes to claim the championship, or just take all your friends and enjoy a great night out. Plus, at an indoor pitch like BATL, you don’t have to worry about the rain or the snow and simply enjoy working on your follow through. Get axe throwing today at a venue where you don’t have to worry about a thing.
