Join our incredible and passionate league community! Axe throwing leagues are 8-weeks of axe throwing competition against between 15-30 other throwers. Over the first 7 weeks, you will play 4 matches each week against other league members to determine who will make the playoffs in week 8. In the playoffs, the top 16 competitors will compete in a double-elimination tournament to determine the league winner for that season.

Urban Axes Leagues are run on the values of Inclusivity, Equality, Respect, Diversity and Fair Play. To read more about our League Values, click here.

Axe throwing is an individual sport played in a group setting. Therefore, forming teams is not necessary. If you had a team in mind, you, your friends and/or colleagues should each sign up individually to take part in the league on the same night of the week. You'll all get to throw together but also with and against other league members.

As founding members of the International Axe Throwing Federation, our leagues are built around the rules defined by IATF. You can find details of the IATF rules here.

Although axe throwing leagues are competitive, a huge part of what makes leagues special is the community! You will be playing against, cheering for, and socializing with the same people in your league every week, so you’re likely to make some great friends (and rivals!) along the way. New to throwing axes? Perfect! Our league community prides itself on helping new throwers learn the ropes.
