Backyard BATL Axe Throwing

The History of BATL

BATL is a nationwide company bringing ax throwing to nearly 2 million people across multiple locations. It all started in 2006 when CEO Matt Wilson founded the first Battle Axe Throwing League in his backyard. What started as a passion of his grew into three BATL locations in Toronto by 2013. By 2015, the company had even more locations in Canada and by 2017, BATL expanded into the U.S. Ax throwing venues have become popular in recent years, but BATL was the first to offer indoor ax throwing in urban environments. Ax throwing is recognized as an international sport as well, and BATL is a founding member of the International Axe Throwing Federation.

The BATL location in Novi is just one of many spread throughout the U.S. and Canada.
