Who can throw
Yes, spectators are always more than welcome, at no cost. Come and cheer on your friends, family and colleagues and become part of the electric atmosphere. All spectators must book in advance, we do have limits on occupancy in the venue and we need to make sure we have the space for onlookers.
Children are welcome to come as spectator. We require that parents or guardians closely monitor children at all times while within the facility. Your child must be in your immediate care at all times as there are axes being thrown.
Please be aware that our facilities are designed for an adult audience, and as such there can be a lot of loud noises such as music, axes and cheering that may be unsettling for young children.
Yes, That is a personal decision based on your physical condition.
However, just like any extreme sport, we highly recommend you seek you Doctor’s advice prior to participating.
Yes, normally participants must be 18 years old. However teenagers 12 years old and up may participate with a parent or guardian supervision. The parent or guardian must sign a waiver on behalf of the adolescent prior to participation.
Yes! Girls and Guys are equally awesome at throwing axes. It’s technique that will make you a winner, not strength.
Safety and Insurance
Yes, we are fully insured.
Yes. As with all sports there is a degree of risk involved. The Wood Shed employees conduct a safety orientation before each session and we are very strict in making sure that everyone is throwing the axes in a safe manner. We closely monitor our facility and patrons to ensure a safe and fun environment for everyone. We have dozens of protective measures in place, such as chain link fencing and a separated spectator area for guests who aren’t throwing. We have a no tolerance policy for excessive drinking in The Wood Shed. Patrons will not be allowed to throw axes while intoxicated.
What to Bring
You must wear closed toe shoes when throwing axes.
If you are wearing opened-toe shoes, or shoes that leave the top of your foot exposed, such as flip-flops, sandals, ballerinas or light fabric shoes, you will not be allowed to throw. High heels are also not recommended.
We also recommend a comfortable, loose fitting top that won’t restrict arm or upper body movement. Hoodies are not recommended, however.
No, all participants must use the equipment provided by The Wood Shed staff.
You’re welcome to bring food and beverages.
Glass Bottles are not permitted.
NO, ALCOHOL IS NOT PERMITTED ON THE PREMISES.
How it works?
The cost is dependant on the day, time and number of people that are throwing axes.
You’re welcome to bring more or fewer guests than selected when booking. Please let us know if your party size changes, so we can ensure that you have all the lanes your group size will require.
As an event-based business, The Wood Shed doesn’t have regularly scheduled retail hours aside from our weekly walk-ins.
Scheduled private axe throwing events take place Mondays – Saturdays.
So if you are thinking of dropping in to check out our venue (Which you are more than welcome to do) make sure you phone us and to check if we have a session running and that staff will be in attendance.
Our staff will determine the appropriate number of targets/lanes based on your group size. Each group will have their own target(s).
YES! Opening Hours Mon – Sat: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm (by booking online or by phone)
This is a detailed comparison (link to price page) of our services.
Private events are great for adult birthday parties, corporate team building functions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and much more.
Whereas, our public walk-in sessions are a chance to experience axe throwing at designated times each week in a public setting with shared space.
For private axe throwing tournaments we can host a full range of group sizes: from 6 – 40 people. Please let us know if your party will be more than 20 so that we can adjust space and staff accordingly.
The size of your group determines the amount of axe throwing you will want to do.
Groups of 6+ people: axe throwing events last for approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. The event starts with roughly 30 minutes of instruction and practice with one of our coaches, before starting a group round robin tournament to crown a champion.
Groups of 2-5 people: axe throwing lasts for 1 hour and costs $20/person.
League information like start dates, times and registration fees, can be found on our Facebook Page.
In May 2017 we became a member of WATL the (World Axe Throwing League).
Our axe throwing league will run for 8 weeks. You will be allowed to have practice throws and warm up (be there on time or early). For the first 7 weeks everyone will get at least 40 competitive throws per night.
Your score for each throw will be tallied and recorded. This will ensure that we’re not ranking you based on who you go up against, rather, your skills at hitting the bullseye to get top scores. They will then make it to the Championship Tournament in week 8 to determine the Axe Throwing League Champion!
