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).



Just click the “Book Now” button and you will be asked about your party size. Once selected, a calendar shows up with available days in green. Then, below, available time will appear for the date selected.
