Portland Axe throwing is the Oregons original axe throwing company founded in 2015. We bring people of all kinds together. We believe that certain sports have a special ability to do that. Like archery, axe throwing has a zen like quality to it when done right. Axe throwing is safer, and it can be learned quicker, with our trainers who act as both teacher and lane marshall.

Portland Axe Throwing is compliant with the Northwest Axe Throwing Association (NWATA) safety guidelines for competitive axe throwing. Each person must sign a waiver before participating. Each group has a coach always present to enforce safety and run games. Each target is fully contained in chain link, similar to a batting cage. Participants must stay behind the safety line which is 14' from the target. Participant must wear shoes that cover their toes. Participants under the age of 21 must have a parent or guardian present.

Stick the axe! It takes 5 minutes to get each person comfortable with sticking and aiming the axe consistently. The axe is a 17' hatchet designed specifically for throwing. Once participants are sticking axes its tournament time! We have a variety of games that we play on a double elimination bracket. If you have a group of 8 or larger or book a 2 hour session the winner gets to take home a hatchet!  

We also have single lane and double lane mobile axe throwing units that can be set up at Cider Riot in SE Portland or pretty much anywhere! Soon we will have a mobile 2 lane trailer. Email for more info.
