Craft Axe Throwing

I hit the bulls eye!

I never thought I was the type of girl who would enjoy throwing an ax at a target on a wooden wall but have I surprised myself. Friday, my husband, my sister, and brother-in-law, and I had a double date night. After dinner, we decided we would try out ax throwing.
We went to this place called Craft Axe Throwing, located in downtown Spartanburg. When we walked in, I noticed it was a small building, but very upbeat. You could hear music playing and the sound of axes being thrown and hitting a wall. People were laughing and having a grand ole time.

After paying the hourly rate of $20 per person for one hour, we followed a worker over to our dedicated lane. He talked to us about ax throwing and showed us the proper and safe way to throw the ax. We then lined up to do a few practice throws with the worker. I thought this was a very safe idea considering how dangerous it can be. My first try at throwing the ax was very nerve-wracking.

My family stood behind watching, along with the worker; I picked the ax up and lifted it above my head, and tossed it as hard as I could through the lane towards the target. As I watched it soar through the air, I thought, “this isn’t that hard,” my ax hit the wall, bounced off, and smacked the ground. Okay, maybe I was wrong. I then had to do the walk of shame down the lane to pick up my ax and walk back while everyone was staring at me. It was embarrassing; I’m not going to lie.

I walked back, got back in position, and tried again. This time my ax flew across the lane and hit the target and stuck. Woo Hoo, I can do this! That feeling of hitting the target was exciting. I was ready to do it again. For the next hour, we got to throw the ax as much as we liked. They had a book with several games you could play against each other, or you could throw the ax and keep up with your score. That’s what we decided to do.

With the four of us, we got about two rounds done within our hour. I ended up with a third place in the first round and second place in the second round. Not too shabby for a girl who had never thrown an ax before. I enjoyed my first time trying ax throwing. I would recommend giving it a try. Even if it isn’t something you are really into, you’ll be surprised how fun it is when you get the hang of it. I did think $20 was a bit much for one person to throw an ax for an hour, but I would pay it again.

  1. I threw an ax at a tree when I was around 12 years old. My father and friends had gone camping lining up the older kids to take turns. My father taught me all those ‘boy things’ then my mother finally had a boy haha
