REGISTRATION OPENS August 5th 2019 for the September league season.

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 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.


The cost for an Adult axe-throwing season is $124 + 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 $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.


Please, please, please, be at the club for 6:30pm at the latest so that we can start on time. Did I mention “Please!”?

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.

PtboAxe Attendance Policy

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.
  • An active email is needed for registration.

Age / Ability

The Peterborough Axe Club Youth Leagues are for youth 8-14 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.
