International Axe Throwing Day

International Axe Throwing Day

This day is a chance to try your hand at tree-felling in a safe, fun and competitive environment. You can even do it free of charge at participating locations!

This day was designed to encourage people to have fun, relax and enjoy a historic past time. Axe throwing clubs around the globe will open their doors for anyone who wants to take up the sport. There’s no reason to not get outside and try it!

International Axe Throwing Day celebrates people all over the globe who have a passion for axe throwing and work together to raise awareness about this urban sport. Axe throwing is a growing sport. It is a fun and offbeat activity that anyone can enjoy. Yes, that’s everyone!

This is not to suggest that your five-year old child is a axe-wielding sailor. This sport can be adapted in safe ways so it’s suitable for everyone. We’re not talking about toys that can cause injury to anyone. Safety is always top priority.

The common axe was once a simple tool that could be used to cut down trees and take into battle. Now it is the central point of a fun-filled, family-friendly activity that doesn’t involve digging up wood or scraps. Axe throwing, as the name implies, is a sport in which you use only an axe to hit a target.

It is most popular in the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom, where it originated as a lumberjack contest. It has become very popular in Europe in recent years, and it is easy to find a place to throw axes there.

There are strict rules when playing competitively. The target must be a specific width and contain five rings. Similar to archery, the further you are from the middle the more points that you will win. Safety is paramount in all axe throwing events. To protect spectators and competitors, there are always safety precautions in place. You can rest assured that you will have a safe and enjoyable time when you sign up to participate in the competition.

You can take a chance at axe throwing for just one day per year. The activity is free at all participating locations. You can have fun with friends or family by joining in the activity. You never know, maybe just one session can awaken your inner athlete or inspire you to start a new hobby.

A lesson with a professional in the field is another way to celebrate International Axe Throwing Day. Throwing a piece steel against a target requires skill. To hit the bullseye you will need more than just a little bit of luck. It can be extremely enjoyable to have someone who is familiar with the sport show you how it works.

A party could be organized with your friends to mark International Axe Throwing Day. We don’t recommend real axe throwing in an event where there will be alcohol.

If the axe ends up hitting someone, you can opt for a replica. Children can also participate and have safe fun during International Axe Throwing Day.

You can also do some research on the art of axe throwing, and the pros who have succeeded in it. You can find a lot of information online about the rules and the competitions around the globe.

It’s also a good idea to spend some time researching the history of the sport. It’s fascinating, and you’ll soon realize that there’s no right or wrong way of throwing an axe. There are many methods. This is something many people don’t realize.

No matter what you do on International Axe Throwing Day – stay safe and have lots of fun!
