Axe Throwing – Our Story

PNW AXE Throwing Company grew out of an idea to bring the great sport of axe throwing to our home, the Pacific Northwest. We were inspired after throwing axes at a few venues in Canada and wanted to share this opportunity with others. Axe throwing is easier than you think and a fun way to bond with friends, family, co-workers, etc.
