Practice and compete anytime between 1pm and 7pm every Saturday.
December through February The Axe Pit will proudly be hosting our first ever Axe throwing competition. The competition will take place over the course of 12 weeks with competitors being required to compete for only 8 of those weeks in the regular season. The last week is reserved for the top 16 competitors of the season who will battle it out in a bracket style championship competition day.
How does it work?
The competition will be in similar style to regular WATL competitions but with an Axe Pit twist. In order to maintain a flexible schedule for our staff and competitors you will only be required to show up at the Axe Pit for 8 of the 12 weeks in the regular season. Each match that a competitor throws will consist of a total of 4 bouts of 5 throws, 20 throws in all. There is a one minute rest period between each bout of 5 throws. If multiple competitors are present they will throw in your rest period and you will throw in theirs, this is interest of fairness and time. Each competitor has one match that they are allowed to “mulligan”, it will not be counted and they can redo their match on a different week.
Scores will be kept in a spread sheet for each competitor and each weeks scores will be promptly uploaded. Every throw will be counted towards your total score for the season. The maximum score possible in the competition is 1920. Scores of 1400 points or higher will automatically earn you one of the 16 available spots in the championship. Additionally scores will be posted online for you to see and each weeks top standings will be highlighted.

Sorry, competitors are NOT allowed to bring their own axes to the Axe Pit due to the fact that you must often walk through children's birthday parties to get to the Axe Pit. Thank you!
