Axe throwing experience

This 1 hour activity is fantastic for parties and groups, and involves learning to throw an axe into wooden roundel targets. This ancient skill was practiced by knights during the Middle Ages, the Vikings and also by native American Indians who perfected the art of throwing Tomahawk axes.

The session will start with an introduction into the basic techniques required to get the axe to hit and stick into the wooden targets at 3m. Light weight training axes are used to ensure everyone understands the techniques.

Larger throwing axes will then be introduced - these require more technique but are really satisfying to throw!

The session will end with a scored competition.

  • Participants must be 10+ years old and 147cm tall

Axe throwing experiences

Axe throwing is loads of fun for anyone aged 10 or over, starting off with our lightweight training angel axes, and then moving on to throwing axes and more challenging targets at our purpose built axe throwing range!

Your session starts with our experienced instructors teaching the skills required to throw light weight three pointed axes, called "angels" at a distance of 3m. Once everyone's perfected the Angels, you move on to larger tomahawk throwing axes at 6m - which are really satisfying to throw! The finale is a hugely fun competition on the 6m range, giving you a winner!
