Why would I want to throw a hatchet?
Isn’t throwing a hatchet on everyone’s bucket-list? Because you can!
And because it is so much fun!!
Indoor hatchet throwing has been around in Canada for 10 years and is a popular past time for our friendly neighbors up North. Learning the sport of hatchet throwing in a safe and controlled environment, from an experienced instructor is a great way to be introduced to the sport. The thrill of victory and rush of adrenaline you get when you sink a bulls-eye and hear your friends screaming your name will be etched into your brain from eternity!

Is Hatchet throwing safe?
Yes, throwing hatchets is similar to other target sports. Provided that participants follow the instructions and safety rules explained by our staff and use common sense, throwing a hatchet is safe. Our experienced and highly trained staff are in the throwing arena with you at all times and monitor your throws for safety and guide you through the entire process. Only participants that have gone through our safety course are allowed to enter the throwing arena. There is no passing of hatchets between players and players must follow specific instructions from their coach.
How does it work?
Group events at Bury the Hatchet last 2 hours and must be booked in advance. All events start with safety instructions and 1-on-1 throwing practice. We’ll then kick off a round robin tournament followed by final knockout round to award a hatchet-throwing champion. Our hatch-perts will take care of all scoring, so you can relax and enjoy the sport. At the end of every round robin tournament, one member of the group is the winner. Tournaments are ideally played with 10 or more people although we can accommodate groups of 4.
How long does it take?
Throwing sessions are 2 hours.
Friday and Saturday you must have a group of 8 or more to book. Sunday through Thursday you must have a group of 4 to book. Parties less than 4 please call for availability.
All bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance online. We welcome same day bookings by phone or Walk-ins if there is availability.
