Axe Throwing Grand Rapids – Now Available
What is Axe Throwing?
Axe throwing is an exciting, new, extreme sport. And, it’s easy enough for you to enjoy without years of sports training. Play: After being assigned a lane, choosing your axe, and signing in (kind of like bowling), you will begin the game(s). Each player will throw an axe attempting to hit a bullseye on the target. Axe throwing at BattleGR is an interactive activity for family fun or some friendly competition.
Is Axe Throwing Safe?
At BattleGR, we take safety very serious. We are the FIRST safe axe throwing in Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas. Our lanes have 15-foot dividers to keep you safe from throwers in the neighboring lanes. If there are no dividers or inferior dividers, you are not safe, period.
Our lanes have patent pending, no bounce back borders to provide the highest level of safety in axe throwing. How does a no bounce back border help protect you? These borders absorb the impact and allows the axe to fall straight to the ground; instead of bouncing off the wood.
Additionally, we use the end grain of the wood. How does end grain wood keep you safer? The end grain wood helps ensure the axe sticks to the target. We do not go to a big box store, buy 2 x 10 wood, and paint the target on it. You will find our targets are easier to get the axe to stick. Which makes the games more enjoyable for different arm strengths. The varying games and challenge levels make each visit customized and unique.
SAFETY RULES – The Legal Stuff!
- Caution – axes and throwing stars are sharp!
- You must wear flat, closed-toe shoes.
- Do Not Throw Hard! Easy does it.
- Throw only one axe or star at a time.
- Stay in the safety area unless it’s your turn to throw.
- Do not pull axes out of targets. Wiggle the axe handle up and down to release. For stars, wiggle up and down for a
- 1-point stick; left and right for a 2-point stick. You can always ask a throwing coach for help.
- Never hand a weapon to the next thrower. Put axes in the box, stars on the shelf.
- No axes or stars are allowed outside of lanes.
