Urban Axes Is Just As Bad A** As It Sounds
If you thought the art of axe throwing was just for lumberjacks and vikings, think again. Urban Axes has brought this rad sport to the public, and it looks intoxicatingly fun. Oh did we mention that bringing booze with you is totally chill too? They currently have location in Philadelphia and Austin, with a Maryland location on the way.
So you’re probably wondering “do I just walk in and throw s**t around for an hour or what?” Kind of, but not quite! Urban Axes is first a hub for an axe throwing league. Yes, that is a thing. They do however have public walk in hours where you can come in with your pals and get rowdy in the general public lanes.

Each group will get a trainer that will show them the proper way to throw an axe and how to hit your target. Once everyone is warmed up and has got the hang of things, the tournament begins! You and your friends will compete against each other to see who is the axe throwing champion!
If you’re really great and had a good time, you can consider taking part in their 8 week league. During these 8 weeks you’ll play matches against other league members. If you are crowned champion of the league, you’ll have a shot to compete in the champion of champions event amongst other league winners. May the best bad axe win!
