HISTORY OF AXE THROWING

The sport of competitive axe throwing developed out of the backyards of Matt Wilson and his friends in Toronto in the summer of 2006.  Soon after, Matt opened the first axe throwing venue in Canada.  Today, hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in the axe throwing phenomenon.  Axe throwing venues have now opened all across Canada and the United States, with hundreds more being built in 2019.

Lumberjaxes founder, Corey Deasy,  enjoyed the axe throwing experience while on vacation in 2016, and immediately knew that axe throwing would be a welcome addition to the Phoenix region.  Lumberjaxes opened their first location in Tempe just minutes from Arizona State University and Tempe Diablo Stadium.  The second area location opened in Westgate Entertaiment District in Glendale, AZ in September 2019.
