League Play

New 8-week LEAUGES:

JANUARY 2022 LEAGUES! This is our 8-week league season for all those people who are interested in FUN!
If you don’t like fun, this is not the league for you. But if you love great people, fun axe throwing and awesome atmosphere then let’s get to it!


Monday: January 10, 2022 – Ages 9-17. All skill levels.

Tuesday RED: January 11, 2022 – For beginners to medium experience.
Tuesday BLACK: January 11, 2022 – For medium to stink’n good!
Thursday RED: January 13, 2022 – For beginners to medium experience.
Thursday BLACK: January 13, 2022 – For beginners to stink’n good!

No matter which league you pick, whether you’ll win lots or have your butt handed to you with a “thanks for a solid effort” note attached to it, our league members are awesome, welcoming and friendly people. You’ll love it.

How It Works

We have up to 30 people throwing on each axe-throwing league night for 8 weeks straight! That’s a lot of axe throwing, so eat your vegetables.

During the 8 weeks, 7 of those will be regulation play (where you will be throwing about 4 matches on your league night). The last week is playoff night where the 16 top scoring throwers square off in a double-elimination tournament, in which the season winner will leave victorious under a blanket of cheers from his/her fellow hatchet wielders.

Skill Levels

The skill levels for each league is described above, but players should keep in mind that people will get better and better as they play through the season. This means that if you suck, that’s ok, you’ll get better! And if you entered a league and the people around you are getting good, then congratulate them as a means of fostering community!
Also, if we don’t have enough players on two leagues that play on the same night (ie Tuesday Red and Tuesday Black), we will amalgomate those same-night leagues into one. That means that skill levels may converge…but that will only make players stronger…or kill them…but probably make them stronger!


The cost for an Adult axe-throwing season is $132.75 + HST.
The cost for a Youth axe-throwing season is $100 + HST.

While you don’t have to bring your own axe to the league (or events), axes can be purchased through us for $25+tx. You can bring your own axe but it must have a wooden handle and be between 1.25-1.75 lbs. Please note, you’re probably going to break an axe at some point (because you’re an animal!) so you’ll want to get a couple.


Please, please, please, be at the club for 6:00pm at the latest so that we can start on time. Did I mention “Please!”?…and “on time”?

Life is busy and maybe you can’t make it out every week. Not to worry, we can catch up on games you missed. You can check out all the details about attendance in the link below.

Additional Notes for Youth Leagues:

  • All youth playing must have waivers signed by a parent or legal guardian.
  • It is up to the parent or legal guardian to organize drop-off and pick-up at appropriate times according to the operating hours of the Peterborough Axe Club. In short, we’re not responsible for your child hanging out in the cold with the wolves and bears!
  • Close toed shoes must be worn to play.

Age / Ability

The Peterborough Axe Club Youth Leagues are for youth 9-17 years of age. HOWEVER, we do need to make sure that youth are strong enough to throw a 1.5 lb hatchet safely. Therefore, some youth may not be permitted to join if the League Host feels that it is not safe for the youth to do so. Please come in and throw some axes before registering to make sure your youth is capable.
