How it works

The Peterborough Axe Club is an incredible place to host birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate events, fundraisers or any other get-together where you want to do something different. These parties are for groups between 6 and 70 people.

All booked events come with your own experienced instructor(s) who will coach you on how to throw like a lumberjack-ninja hybrid! We’ll make sure your get-together is safe and ton of fun!

Your instructor will start by teaching safety; then they will teach you how to throw hatchets during the practice session. From there they will organize your group into a round robin tournament, call the games and score the games.

There is a brief break where you will be taught some trick shots; and when we return from the break your group will be seeded into a bracket elimination tournament bringing the whole group down to one winner-takes-all-I’m-better-than-everyone-oh-look-at-how-great-I-am champion!

That champion will also receive our “Champ Card” letting them play for free the next time they are in with a group of 6 or more.

The whole process takes about 2.5 hrs and is more fun than you’ll know what to do with!

We encourage that participants be 13+ to ensure that they are strong enough to throw the hatchets.

Please wear close toe’d shoes. Don’t worry, you’re safe…but wear’em!



Cost for your private event is $30/person + tax.

PLEASE NOTE that private bookings are expected to cover the minimum number of attendees for the number of lanes booked (ie Booking 31-40 people will utilize 4 lanes. If 27 people show up or only 27 decide to throw, the party is expected to cover the cost of at least 31 people).
