League Bookings

Enroll in Doubles Leagues now!

We’re running a 5 week doubles league. 4 matches a night for the first 4 weeks with a 5th week playoff. We’ll have room for 17 teams (don’t worry – everyone makes playoffs!), and you can team up with whomever you like! You can also register as an individual and we’ll pair you up with another free agent (if we are able!). Cost is $100 per person ($200/team). Registration is by individual, so both members of the team must register. Please put your teammate’s name in the booking notes.


How it works

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.

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. Each match consists of three rounds of 5 throws (so 15 axes total per match). During week 8, the top 16 competitors will compete in a double-elimination tournament to determine the league winner. 

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.

What else should I know

Urban Axes have available for sale IATF-compliant axes for $25 each plus tax. You can use one of general pool of axes but isn't it much more fun to have your own axe? You're in an axe throwing league! We have sourced what we consider to be the best throwing axes available that are used across Canada where the sport originated.

If you want to bring your own axe, it must meet IATF specifications.
