Axe throwing is a recreational sport, in which players compete by throwing axes at wooden targets. Axe throwing is a popular team-building activity for businesses, churches and other organizations. It’s also an ideal activity for special celebrations, like bachelor(ette) parties, graduations, birthdays, or simply a fun night out with friends and family. Flying Axes will also offer an axe throwing league starting in the early fall of 2017.


Flying Axes is Louisville’s first axe throwing venue. (Additional locations in other cities to be announced soon.) Flying Axes is also introducing a new technology to the sport — electronic scoreboards, which feature a throwback design and a mobile-app controller.
