What is axe throwing?

Axe-throwing is a target sport, similar to darts or archery. It’s growing in popularity in recent years, with more people picking it up as a new hobby. Players will stand behind a foul line, and try to throw an axe into a target. As with most target sports, the closer your axe lands to the centre, the higher your score will be! The highest amount of points will be awarded to a bullseye, with the score decreasing the further away from the centre your axe lands. Each player will add up their scores at the end of the game, the highest score wins!

Sounds pretty easy, right? Come and see if you have the skills to get a bullseye! 

At TimberVault, we have two different options for our Plymouth axe throwing. You can either choose a standard lane (regular axe throwing, up to 6 players) or one of our brand new interactive axe lanes (Champ Throw, up to 5 players).
