Let's get together and release our inner lumberjacks! The recreational sport has been popular in Canada for about 10 years now, and it's just started hitting the U.S. a couple years ago. Axe throwing came to Texas in 2017 with thr first location in the state, right here in Houston.
Whether you're already a veteran axe chucker or someone looking to learn, we're glad to have you. Membership to this group is free thanks to donations from Houston Axe Throwing, LLC. All axe throwing specific events are hosted at Houston Axe Throwing as availability allows.
Our goal is to create a community of axe throwers in the Houston area and teach people about axe throwing as a sport. We also aim to help people new to the sport improve their skills and become part of the larger international axe throwing community, including through membership in the World Axe Throwing League.
Newbies can attend guided axe throwing sessions to learn from an experienced coach. Every year there is a free open house on International Axe Throwing Day, June 13th, for those who want to try it for free.
For those looking to regularly throw axes, there are axe throwing leagues Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter for all skill levels. Those who join league become members of the World Axe Throwing League (WATL), with Houston having the one of the largest WATL leagues in the world. League members are also eligible to compete in the World Axe Throwing Championships and other axe throwing tournaments. League members also receive specialized coaching and advanced skills training.
We also host game nights and watch parties for when axe throwing is on tv/ESPN.
