How it works
We have 30 people throwing on a 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.
The cost for an axe throwing season is $115 + HST.
While you don’t have to bring your own axe to the league (or events), axes can be purchased through us for $20. 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.
Okay, let’s get you signed up for one of the axe throwing leagues nights.

Alright, so you want the details? There are a few things you might want to know about being in a league.
We get it. Life is busy and maybe you can’t make it out every week. Do you have to feel bad about that? A little. Because axe throwing is awesome and you missed even one little piece of it. But really, should you be worried? No. It’s not like this is your job. We can catch up on games you missed; we can deal if you have to show up late; we can make it work if you have to skip out early. So just sign up!
But we do have a few rules put together to make sure its fair for everybody and we don’t drop games from the schedule. Check out all the nitty-gritty in the link below.
Oh yeah, also. There is a National Axe Throwing Federation Championship Tournament. Do you know what that means? That means that you can be a National Axe Throwing Champion. That. Is. Cool.
But how? …Well listen up!.. You earn your spot by playing in leagues. Ok, not just playing, you kinda have to clean up. Taking the top spots in league standings and playoff tournaments through the year will earn you Champ Points that are used to figure out if you will represent Peterborough Axe Club at the big-time.
UPDATED DEC 2017 – Here’s where the top players stand! The Champ Contenders list is made up of those folks who have gained enough Champ Points to be in the race for the NATF Tournament. Keep up the pace.
Stats and Schedules
It’s not enough to just be awesome; you want your skills recorded forever in the prestige that is the internet. Well look no further than here, my friend!
