Axe & Knife Throwing

(3 customer reviews)


Warning… This Target Sport is Extremely Addictive!

The Anglo-Saxons would use a specially designed throwing axe (a francisca) before the initial clash with the enemy, throwing them to create damage & havoc. During these session, you’ll not only learn how to safely & responsibly throw an axe, but to make it stick in specially prepared wooden targets, rather than an enemy!

    Had a fantastic time this morning, thank you so much, a great way to indulge in a slice of crazy! My whole family loved it, will definitely be coming again! You guys rock!

  2. Edward B

    Fantastic set up with all safety in place. I really enjoyed my session of axe and knife throwing (and not just because I hit the bulls eye!) I highly recommend attending an event when you get the chance and I will definitely be returning for another go!

  3. Lynette W

    Very attentive and patient. Loved every minute and if a 58 year old lady with a dodgy knee can do it then anyone can!
