What is Axe Throwing? Where Did it Come From?

Axe throwing is an exhilarating target sport, much like darts, but with a warrior’s twist! Players throw axes at a wooden target. Players stand about 10-12 feet away from the target, aiming for the bullseye to score big points. The further from the bullseye, the fewer the points. It’s a game of skill, where the best scorer after all the throws is the champ. Every axe throwing location has its own twist on the rules, but the thrill is always the same.

What’s cool about axe throwing is that it’s not just about how strong you are. It’s all about how well you can aim and throw. This makes it a hit for anyone and everyone, no matter if you’re young, old, athletic, or just there to have a good time.

Origins and Evolution of Axe Throwing: How and Where it Started

Ever since the Stone Age, humans have been throwing axes. What started as a tool for hunting and building homes turned into a symbol of power and skill. Think about the Vikings – for them, axe throwing was serious business, a way to settle scores and show off their warrior skills.

Fast forward to Canadian loggers in the not-so-distant past. They took axe throwing from a way to pass the time to a competitive sport. Today, we have Loggersports, where throwing axes is a main event that keeps everyone on the edge of their seats.

History of Axe Throwing

Let’s jump to the early 2000s. That’s when axe throwing really started to become what it is today – a super cool urban sport. It got its first big break in Europe with groups like EuroThrowers. Then, it swung over to North America. The big moment was in 2006, when the Backyard Axe Throwing League kicked off in Toronto. That’s when axe throwing went from the great outdoors to the heart of the city.
