What is Axe Club?
Axe club is a place to throw axes… Simply put, you throw one of our hatchets at a target and the closer to the bullseye you are the higher your score… Most people have never thrown an axe before so we will help you, guide you and soon you will be hitting the bulls eye and scoring high. Battle your mates for the highest score, learn a few trick shots and hang out – it’s for everyone.
Doesn’t sound very glamorous, but axe throwing has become one of the fastest-growing pastimes in Canada… my introduction to axe throwing proved to be a worthwhile, cathartic challenge that pulled me in deeper with every throw. When axe lanes gain in popularity in Ireland, and they will, I suggest you go out and bury the hatchet with an old friend”.
When Eoin Weldon (Irish Examiner newspaper) wrote recently, little did he know that Axe Club.ie was already slinging axes in Wicklow so get your lumberjack/jill on at AxeClub
