Big Axe & Knife Throwing Subject to Location Availability

One of the founding members of both the WATL and WKTL, Bad Axe Throwing runs leagues 4 times per year in any location where we get enough sign-ups!

Our minimum sign up is 7 registrants for Hatchet as the base league, then 4 per non-hatchet discipline (Big Axe, Duals, Knives)

Each season runs for 8 weeks. Games can be made up from missed weeks on any week except for week 8 - the final tournament (and potluck!)
