Axe Throwing, Sarnia and London
Take part in the newest craze, Axe Throwing, where you throw axes at a bullseye target. At BATL Grounds Axe Throwing, aka the Original Backyard Axe Throwing League, in London you’re offered the chance to experience axe throwing on a casual walk-in basis at designated times each week. Seasoned coaches will be on hand to instruct those who have never thrown an axe before, and offer tips on technique for more experienced throwers. Valley Axe in Sarnia also took axe throwing to another level and built an indoor facility for players to have a blast with friends and family. You can focus on hitting a bullseye since you’ll be provided with axes, targets, coaching, music, and beverages at Valley Axe.
