Knife Throwing Subject to Location Availability

Need something to do in the offseason and you just can't get enough axe throwing?

Not sure if you want to make the competitive leap yet?

Our Rec Leagues take place in the 4 weeks between WATL (World Axe Throwing League) seasons! Built for both WATL throwers and newbies who aren't sure about joining an 8 week WATL league (yet), Rec Leagues offer something for everybody. 3 out of the 4 weeks are team games, and the season ends off with a 1v1, double elimination final tournament!

Each Rec League Season will start after each WATL season's end date.

(Ex. Summer Rec starts from August 27).
