BATL IL
  • Typical BATL events include birthdays, bachelor/ bachelorette parties, corporate team building and similar functions. Our private group tournaments are fully staffed in a private throwing area, with individual coaching and 'target practice' before taking part in a round robin and group playoff lasting 1 - 2.5 hours. In addition to private events, which must be booked in advance, BATL offers the chance to experience axe throwing on a casual walk-in basis at designated times each week. History: Established in 2006. We're BATL, the original Backyard Axe Throwing League. Our mission is to show people the power of being good to each other, using the axe as a tool to build community inspired by our backyard roots. We're immensely proud to have been the first organization in the world to offer an urban venue to experience the thrill of indoor axe throwing in leagues, walk-ins, group parties and team building. BATL was founded in the backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006. What started as a personal passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today nearly 1 million people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at one of our 14 locations.
